An antique turned mission Oak wood Arts and Crafts smoking set which includes a tobacco humidor, two match holders and an ashtray. All sit on a platform table with four legs. Made of the hardwood Oak, the color is a darker gun-stock brown with reddish highlights.
The lid of the cigarette humidor lifts off and reveals 12 drilled holes for smokes of your choice. The Oak humidor is removable. Beneath you will see where the wood was not solid, but used on a lathe anyway. There are two match buckets which are not removable, glued to the Oak table. The Oak ashtray sits within a ring and is also removable, easy for cleaning. The rings that hold the humidor and ashtray are also glued along with the match holders. The treenware Oak legs are doweled and glued. On the surface beneath there are rounded saw blade marks, the surface was left a bit rough.
There are no hallmarks as to who the maker was or where the set was made on this antique Mission Oak set
Size: Oak table is 10" long x 4-5/8" wide and stands 2-1/2" tall. The small cigar humidor measures 4-1/4" tall and just over 2-3/4" wide. The ashtray measures 3-1/4" round and the match holders about 1-1/2" tall.
Condition: Pristine. The lip underneath the lid of the humidor is partially missing, broken from days gone by. The wood walls along side the humidor has split in two area's but does not travel all the way down nor affect the integrity of the container. A bit of white paint. One match holder is also split along the side wall. This is the nature of the beast when it comes to aging wood. However the pieces are still strong and with proper care will last another 100 years plus.
