Can I get a light?

Here is a unique find I got at a junk shop. I was on the prowl for some silver flatware which, by the way, is the Holy Grail of antique hunting these days. Anyway, I happened to notice this table lighter for $5! Although I don't smoke, I thought it would be a pretty desk accessory that I could use to light candles. It didn't work at first, and it was very tricky to fix. However, after replacing the flint and filling it with butane, I am happy to say that it works quite well and looks like new!
