Father Xamas 1911 Humidor

Ebay pic of the Father Xmas humidor. I could see it was in pretty good condition.



Ebay pic interior. Metal lining. Yes it did come with a double hand full of chestnuts. I still have them laying around someplace.




The finish turned out really nice! I think it's tung oil varnish but it's hard to say from the pic.



I can tell this is an early humidor of mine. The lid cedar is in two pieces. And it has a Premier humidifier.



This is why I bought this humidor. The sweet quartersawn oak and the dated name plate. Father Xmas 1911. How cool is that?

Gorgeous. Quartersawn oak -- my favorite. Stickley used it copiously in his Craftsman works.

Beautiful. I was expecting something different with the "1911" moniker....
