    Hello Everyone, 01-31-2017, 9:00 PM
    Here is one of my last addition to my bohemian collection, a Rindskopf tad pole design, i have this one in my radar for a while, and recently I decided to go for it, just receive today, i have to admit, i am far to be disappointed.

    I have already a cookie jar with the same design but different iridescent colours, tin brass lid with art nouveau allegorie.
    Inner clear glass with green oil spot, gold, red and Yellow iridescent throughout.

    This Humidor stand 7.5 inch tall, by 6 inch at the widest portion.

    Many Thanks Everyone for Viewing.
    Alan
    ---------------------------------------Humidor------------------------------------

    A humidor is any kind of box or room with constant humidity that is used to store cigars, cigarettes, or pipe tobacco. For private use, small wooden boxes holding a few dozen cigars are common, while cigar shops may have walk-in humidors. Humidors can be used to maintain consistent humidity level for other goods.

    -----------------------------------Construction------------------------------------

    Commercially made humidor cases are typically made of wood, although other materials, like acrylic glass and metal, are not uncommon. Carbon fibre, silicon carbide, and polyethylene have also been used. Disregarding aesthetic qualities, the casing's purpose is to protect the interior and create a closed environment, so any durable and airtight material can be used.

    The interior is typically a veneer of Spanish-cedar, which possesses the following desirable characteristics for cigar storage:

    It holds more moisture than most woods, so it helps maintain humidity.
    It is not prone to "warping" or "cupping" in high humidity.
    It imparts its aroma to cigars. For the same reason, some cigars are wrapped in Spanish-cedar sheets before they are sold.
    It can repel tobacco beetles, pinhead-sized pests which can ruin entire stocks of cigars by eating the tobacco and laying eggs, causing further infestation. They can also be discouraged by ensuring the humidor does not get hotter than 20 °C (68 °F).The beetle eggs usually only hatch at around 25 °C (77 °F)[citation needed], although there are also instances where they will hatch at cooler temperatures if the humidity is too high.
    Humidors are typically commercially produced, though most walk-ins are custom built and some humidors are homemade.They range considerably in material, size and complexity. Capacity is determined by deducting the space required for the humidification element and some extra room between the element and the cigars. It can also be calculated online for the most popular cigar formats.
