1910 Mahogany Presentation Humidor

This was an early effort too.

EBay pic:
1910 presentation humidor. Striped mahogany. Finish was in bad shape so it was stripped.



EBay pic #2:
Milk glass inner. Top panel missing. Figured I could improve it.



Finished pics:

This is the first really elegant humidor I had. I was still using tung oil varnish. Sometimes I think about redoing it in an oil finish but....nah, it looks pretty good as is. Yep, I still have it. My Cubans have resided in this humidor since about 2004.



Top quality striped mahogany on this box. Plate reads: Presented to John H. Hooper by the employees of the Providence Factory Ward - Corby Co. Dec. 25th 1910.



Lined it with Spanish Cedar and made a tray. Humidification is beads provided by Premier in their slim metal holder. Still working.
