Description

Very rich, impressive cigar box on a stand. A piece which will attract many admiring glances due to its Classic Art Deco elegance.
The bubinga timber selected by Dunhill for this piece is not only unusual but visually stunning, and has great depth of colour and figuring. Every aspect of the box and Stand has been inlaid with simple elegant lines of bone, even on the back and inside of the splayed legs, thereby allowing to piece to be displayed to full effect at any angle.

It has two brass flush-fitting carrying handles and key profile. Using the handles to lift off the Stand reveals a table base veneered in exquisite burr bubinga and a cedar lined drawer which can be accessed at any time, unlike the humidor itself, which has a lock and key.
Opening the humidor reveals the famous Dunhill enamelled badge and a brass grilled humidifier unit and rubber seal. The whole box is lined in cedar and has a large removable tray with brass carry handles. The stand has a hidden drawer to the front with a removable compartment divider.
This lavish piece of smoking furniture by Dunhill has been made with no expense spared and would no doubt have belonged to a very wealthy cigar connoisseur due to the many hundreds of cigars it would take to fill.
