Large 1950s Austrian Bronze Mano Fico Lighter for Saks Fifth Avenue
Expressive, very seldom seen whimsy figural bronze lighter with nickel cuff and bangle heart charm detail, hand made Saks Fifth Avenue circa 1950s. Fully signed.
The hand is signing the mano fico - a gesture for good luck, fertility, and protection from evil. The bronze is embossed 'Saks Fifth Avenue Made in Austria' in impressed script on the wrist. Large, heavy and fully functional.
Condition: Very good with shallow indentions to cuff
