~Presenting El Tabaco~
May I introduce you to my newest love? Actually, he's my oldest, age-wise, but newest, too: a beloved friend agreed to let him broaden my barware owl cabinet... with friends like that, who needs a fairy godmother? Not me. Love you, Betty. Anywayyyyyyyyyyyy... he is a HUMIDOR, about 13 inches tall, Majolica, marked on base as photographed, PROBABLY 1880-ish-plus, PROBABLY Continental European, PROBABLY a popular line in his day... DEFINITELY fabulous. There are examples online, different heights/sizes, and with/without the book-as-base element. You know I have to name my owls. I'm calling him El Tabaco. How I wish I could learn more about him, the better to enhance our romance!
