At the beginning of the 1960s, Pablo Picasso chose three S.T.Dopont 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 chosen by such a prestigious artist and,to commemorate the occasion, has created the limited edition “faun” lighter.
