These fake 1920s battery torches spring apart and set off a percussive cap, making an explosion, when the button to turn them on is pressed. These are superb quality, probably made by the Nuremberg factory of Simon Hechinger. We have two, one with better paint than the other (priced accordingly).


This comes with our exclusive Fact Card on the history of joke manufacturing in Germany.


Condition: Very good, fully working with some light corrosion, one has minor paint loss, the other has more paint loss, but is still in very good condition.


This is a vintage item and is being sold as a collectible, not a toy.
