Unknown to me - possible TCW

Post by Dimitri »

Dear, once again I turn to the most experienced of the group, to identify a lighter.
In this case, a lighter, which, due to the construction, the rivets and the engraving, seems to be from the early 1920s,
The clothing material, having no wear marks, or bronze shadows, I would dare to say that it could be alpacca, but I'm not sure.
It reminds me of the TCW taifun or trench lighters, which are of a similar mechanism, but made of bronze and lighter construction

Any comment to identify it is appreciated

Regards. Dimitri


Mir unbekannt - mögliche TCW

Lieber, ich wende mich noch einmal an den erfahrensten der Gruppe, um ein Feuerzeug zu identifizieren.
In diesem Fall scheint ein Feuerzeug, das aufgrund der Konstruktion, der Nieten und der Gravur aus den frühen 20er Jahren stammt,
Das Kleidungsmaterial, das keine Gebrauchsspuren oder Bronzetöne aufweist, würde ich wagen zu sagen, dass es Alpacca sein könnte, aber ich bin mir nicht sicher.
Es erinnert mich an die TCW-Taifun- oder Grabenfeuerzeuge, die einen ähnlichen Mechanismus aufweisen, jedoch aus Bronze und einer leichteren Konstruktion bestehen

Jeder Kommentar zur Identifizierung wird geschätzt

Grüße. Dimitri

Olá Dimitri

Wenn ich mir die Bearbeitung genauer ansehe, glaube nicht, dass das Feuerzeug fabriksmäßig gefertigt wurde :idea:
Aus meiner Sicht war da ein findiger Bastler am Werk, der da aus diversen Teilen sein eigenes Stück gebaut hat ;)

If I take a closer look at the machining, I don't think the lighter was factory-made :idea:
From my point of view, there was a resourceful hobbyist at work who built his own piece from various parts ;)

Best Regards, Joe

Dear Joe,

I do not rule out that possibility, and if so, it is an excellent handicraft work, since the mechanism is not entirely simple to build and works perfectly.

Thank you for your contribution

While I agree that the finish could suggest a handmade one-off, the mechanism for sure is borrowed from "Tempête" lighters made in France 1920s-30s under different marques.

I have variants marked Feudor, L'aquilon and Rustic.

They are generally taller, the parts are longer, including the u-shaped rod that connects the spring with the cap.

I can make pictures, but I assume those are well known models to you.

I thank you, and if I have several Feudor and L'aquilon with similar mechanisms, but they are different enough, especially in manufacturing, to think that it is not directly linked to those brands
