Here are some of my favorite Art Deco cigarette holders or humidors, circa 1930's. I love the Jazz Age combination colors of red, black, and chrome together--so stylish! The red and chrome one in the middle has an original tag on the green felt bottom which reads, "King New York." That could be the original manufacturer, or it could be a giftware shop that sold the item. I couldn't find anymore information about that company or shop on the internet. The red areas are either paint or enamel, and I love the red streamline, speed lines on the finial.
The smaller red, black and chrome cylinders have a metal separator inside for the cigarettes, while the larger red and chrome one does not. The manufacturer for the two black ones is unknown. Great Machine Age items from a bygone era.
