The Ronson Queen Anne lighter was a very popular wick lighter, especially in the US in the 1940's and 1950's. The lighter was named after Queen Anne of Great Britain, who reigned from 1702 to 1714. This model was first manufactured in 1936 in Newark, New Jersey, USA, than also in the UK. The production ceased in 1961 when the new Queen Anne with the Varaflame insert was introduced into the world market.

The lighter has a very robust construction which made it very durable and widespread. It is silver-plated and the base is padded with green felt. The lighter has three different patterns: a tulip scroll around the top, pearl like bead around the middle and fan like pattern going down the edge. Good work of craftsmanship.

There are two different versions of this wick lighter. The first, produced between 1936 and 1949 in USA, Canada, and England, had a radius on the top of the snuffer cap next to the flint wheel. The second one had a flat top snuffer cap and was produced from 1950 till 1961 (Canada, England, USA). The Queen Anne lighter was advertised as: "A gift that will last a lifetime". The newer lighter was also available in rhodium plate finish and is rare.
