Presented for sale is an early 19th century English-Russian copper repoussé humidor lined in tin. The lid is emblazoned with a double eagle- an emblem used throughout history, but most notably associated with the Romanov dynasty. The double lions rampant adorning the front could also indicate an English origin. It might be that the humidor encompassed both realms and was indicative of the Romanov line, which had ties to the English monarchy.
The box contains a removable liner, as well as a perforated tin “pocket” (lined with a paper or cotton material for soaking) attached to the underside of the lid. The humidor is in excellent condition and is raised on animal paw feet.
Size: 5 1/2" Height by 10 1/2" Length by 6" Depth.
