The Windsor Collection draws its design from the Georgian and Palladian styles which were popular in the 18th Century in Britain, establishing cleaner lines and a more symmetric look.
The lighter’s decor is inspired by the original lighter specifically made for the Duke of Windsor in a specific travel case in the 1940s.
Edward VIII (Edward Albert Christian George Andrew Patrick David; 23 June 1894 – 28 May 1972) was King of the United Kingdom and the Dominions of the British Empire, and Emperor of India, from 20 January 1936 until his abdication on 11 December the same year. With a reign of 326 days, Edward is one of the shortest-reigning monarchs in British history.
After his abdication, he was appointed to the Duke of Windsor and spent the rest of his life in retirement in France.
