The Price for one Zippo was very high in 1938 and that's the reason why a Belle Kogan Zippo extremly rare, today. The Russian industrial designer had from the 30's a strong rising career in the US with the design of watches, tableware, jewelry, radios and many more plastic. In 1938, became aware of the Zippo Company on the successful designer and asked Belle Kogan, whether they want to design 4 different Zippo. She agreed and now very rare Belle Kogan Zippo were produced.
