Antique Cigar Humidors

A decade and more ago I was heavily into antique and vintage cigar humidors and ashtray stands. Photos of my resurrection projects were all over this forum. Then Cigar Weekly did a major software upgrade which wiped out the existing user albums. Plus I was away for awhile getting deep into the pipe smoking hobby. I've quit pipes now and renewed my interest in cigars and their associated equipment.
I thought it might be fun to re-post photos of old projects so new people can see them and maybe initiate some discussion. I might post some new projects as I get going again too.

First post is of what I called the Jewett humidor. So called because there was a label inside that read: The Jewett Humidor Buffalo, N.Y.
In the beginning I bought what was cheap. So condition was hit or miss. Pic as bought:



Hard to tell what's under the blackened varnish, dings and scratches.

Interior was all copper with a clay humidifier. There must have been some trays to fit over it. They were long gone.



Wood turned out to be solid striped mahogany. Box is a bit taller than usual to compensate for the humidifier compartment. Finish was actually nicer than the poor lighting in the pic shows.



Early on I thought more cedar lining was better. I kept the inner lid copper just to show what it had been. Plus the copper was corroded in the bottom. removing it allowed more room for cigars. A nice tray finished it off. And I kept the Jewett plate. It's a prize! I was pretty happy with this one.
