Rare Vtg Zippo Lighter Ramayana Prince Rama Sterling Silver Made In Siam

This is for a very rare unused Zippo lighter made between 1949 and 1950 in what is now Thailand. 70+ years later this is still new in its box. The engraved solid sterling silver case depicts "Prince Rama" with beautiful scrollwork on the lid. The bottom of the case is stamped "Made in Siam" which is.

The paper box is actually in great shape considering the years. The inside cover of the box shows a Bangkok address. Someone there was big on the Ramayana long ago.

Prince Rama is the hero of t. He Ramayana, an epic Sanskrit(ancient language of India) tale which follows Prince Rama's quest to rescue his beloved wife Sita from the clutches of Ravana with the help of an army of monkeys. The story is traditionally attributed to Valmiki and dates to around 500 to 100 BC/BCE. The story is told in 24,000 verses and contains the teachings of very ancient Hindu sages. One of the most important literary works of ancient India the Ramayana has greatly influenced art and culture in the Indian subcontinent and South East Asia with versions of the story also appearing in the Buddhist canon. The story of Rama has constantly been retold in poetic and dramatic versions by some of India's greatest writers and also in narrative sculptures on temple walls. It is one of the staples of later dramatic traditions, re-enacted in dance-dramas, village theatre and the annual Ram-lila(Rama-play). Prince Rama is an incarnation of the God Vishnu. The eldest and favorite son of Dasaratha, King of Ayodhya, he is a virtuous prince and is much loved by the people.

He is exiled from Ayodhya due to the plotting of his stepmother, Kaikeyi. If there's a problem let me know and I'll work with you.
