I'm not sure intelligent items have souls.
The rules say to treat them as constructs, and constructs can't be resurrected, which to me implies they have no soul. No soul, means nothing to put into a phylactery. So I don't think a lich ritual would work.
Lich's become such as a means to avoid mortality and death. An intelligent item is already there.
(And for what it's worth, I don't think a possessed spell caster would lose their soul and become a lich is forced to perform the ritual, but I don't know what would happen.)

ive always wanted to make my graveknights armor intelegent just so it could become a lich and have a phelactory so that if the graveknight armor is ever destroyed i can still come back as the armor has a phelactory
I love this idea. What a great concept for a villain.
How many different ways do we have to kill this a**&!*%?
I think a Lich can become an intelligent item.
An intelligent phylactery would be nightmare fuel for the Lich. They put their soul in an unfeeling, unmotivated lump of metal/stone for a reason- now you just gave it legs, a CG alignment and a squeaky gnomish voice.
Interting. Most of the time when I use liches in my games, they make their phylacteries intelligent on purpose.
This is such a weird question, that if you are going to ask it you might as well go for it. Obviously the rules are not meant for this sort of thing, so as GM do what you think is cool.
I would make it into a flesh golem like lich. Flesh golems is a construct not an undead, so I am sure there is a construct version of a lich that is equally messed up.

Alright, lets change it up slightly. What if instead of an intelligent item, it was a Belier Demon possessing a person, or a wizard using Magic Jar?
Who's soul goes into the phylactery? The possessing entity, or the host?
That's an interesting way to make liches. Expensive, but maybe there's a reason for it.
