Price Code: ££££
Humidor Corporation of New York City
An incredibly stylish Sterling silver cigar humidor of drum form, the straight-sided body with deep geometric Art Deco engraving to the sides, with a rolled foot. The curved neck of the lid with a pull-off finial contains the patented RUMIDOR HUMIDOR mechanism, which allows – by rotating the finial – to ‘switch’ on or off the humidification in the drum. The inside bearing maker’s marks and patent numbers, the interior had a gilded finish, and is stamped STERLING to the swirled, polished base. The only drum like this that we have ever seen or owned, a piece of practical tobacconalia in beautiful, original condition. American, circa 1930.
