Philip M. Rose had a vision & in 1957 he turned that vision into his new business called Roseart Company. From his experience with working with a variety of marble from all over the world with his family business - the Wright Monumental Works, Inc., he knew this beautiful material would make a wonderful combination with George G. Blaisdell's famous Zippo lighters.

Mr. Blaisdell agreed to allow Mr. Rose to use Zippo lighters in his table lighters at a wholesale cost & with that Mr. Rose's lighter concept would become a reality. (Shown above is the original letter of agreement plus a restored version)
