First German/Koln concours hippique 1929 award/humidor.
For more then one reason a very interesting humidor/cabinet. It's probably been given as some kind of an award to somebody in 1929 who participated in the first German official Concours Hippique in Cologne (Köln). Which makes this an interesting historical piece of CHIO memorabilia. A plaque inside the door has the German text. 'Internationales Reit - und Fahrturnier Köln 1929 - Ehrenpreis der Firma Oldenkott'. The Oldenkott tobacco co. was founded in the Netherlands, Amsterdam 1760 by Hermann Oldenkott. In 1819 they expanded with a branch in Germany. (Ahaus)By 1929 they became the biggest German tobacco co. In 1972 the Dutch company Niemeijer took over. This beautiful mahogany veneered and inlaid humidor/cabinet comes from the famous Niemeijer tobaccomuseum collection which was completely sold at auction in the year 2011. Measures appr. 15" x 11.5" x 10". Brass pipe bowl. Rack for 6 pipes. Door with lock. (key is missing) Beneath the pipe bowl, not visibel, and next to the door a little veneer loss. On top traces of use.
