Antique English Regency Rosewood Humidor 19th Century
No one else will have anything close to the statement of civilized, refined and cultured masculinity of this 200 year old rare piece. Genuine rare early 19th Century English Regency rosewood humidor converted from a period teapoy made by finest of cabinet maker artisans in the 1820s. In England, the wealthiest nation in the world at the time, an important way successful gentlemen expressed their refinement and excellence was in their tea accouterments, specifically tea chests. The very well to do had teapoys or free-standing tea chests demonstrating the highest quality in craftsmanship. This exceptional rare and unusually large rich rosewood English Regency free standing piece including the structured architectural form emphasized pyramid lines on the lid combined with striking shaped concave side-walls, burled pedestal and scrolled feet make the strong statement of the robust and elegant Regency style. This Brazilian rosewood (Dalbergia Nigra), the most prized and costly cabinet wood of this period, strikingly contrasts dark and light striations bringing an uncommon rich depth to the piece. This humidor, never been used, newly lined in superlative cedar includes magnetized removable humidifier and features two tiers, the top one removable. The cedar partitions are adjustable to customize and accommodate your particular cigar collection. A perfect complement for your richly appointed library or study. Remember gentlemen, this fine piece is free-standing so you can set it next to your leather club chair without the need of a table or without taking up room on a table. Dimensions: 28 high X 16 wide X 16 deep cedar lined interior measures 11.5 wide X 10 deep by 4.5 deep.
