At the beginning of the 1960's, Pablo Picasso chose three S.T. Dupont lighters to use in his art. In the Chinese lacquer surfaces, he engraved a Harlequin on one lighter and a Pierrot figure on another, as gifts for his son and daughter-in-law. Today, these lighters are part of the personal collection of Mrs Ruiz-Picasso. On the third lighter, which he gave to a friend, he engraved a faun, a recurring motif in Picasso's work which is often considered to be a form of self-portrait.
S.T. Dupont is proud that its objects were chose by such a prestigious artists and, to commemorate the occasion, has created the limited edition "faun" lighter.
The Picasso Limited Edition series are represented by: Jeroboam Table lighter (500pcs), Secret Carriage Clock (500 pcs), a pocket lighter (6000 pcs).
The lighter is brand new (new old stock) with all original boxes and paperwork, never been used or even fired.
