We are offering this terrific French hand-carved walnut humidor done in the Black Forest style that dates from about 1880. It measures 11 inches by 8 3/4 inches at the widest points on the base. The total height to the top of the carving on the lid is about 7 ½ inches. There are 5 grooved shelves inside, each of which slides out like a drawer and is capable of holding 10 cigars. The box is beautifully carved with a floral motif on the top and a geometric diamond design cut into the sides. The surface is in fine condition bearing the rich patina of French walnut and the wax finish that has protected it so well over the years. The condition is wonderful with very little indication of wear or abuse. There is a seasonal warp on the lid that is common with flatsawn boards as they age and it changes with the seasons. This warp is visible in the photos. The lock and key works well. All hardware is original. There is no odor of cigars inside. This would make a terrific statement sitting on a large desk or shelf. Because of their one-of-a-kind nature, pieces like this are becoming more and more difficult to obtain.
