About Zippo's 45th Venetian Anniversary Lighter

This collectible celebrates the 45th Anniversary of the Venetian lighter, previously known as the Florentine. This lighter pays tribute to the extensive history of the Zippo lighter. The design includes three processes. First, Zippo's newest process Laser 360° Engraving. Using computer programming the design is replicated.
