For sale is a wonderful arts and crafts hand hammered humidor made by Gustav Stickley of East Syracuse, NY. The humidor is quite large as it measures 7 3/8" wide by 5 3/4" deep and 4 5/8" tall to the top of the handle.
This humidor has a wonderful hand hammered texture on copper with a splendid applied hand hammered decorative handle. The hand hammering is plentiful and wonderfully done. The patina is as found original condition and considered quite good. You can see some wear with the copper peeking through especially on the underside of the box. The craftsman brown patina with darker brown highlights brings the warmth to this piece. The handle is mounted to the top cover and is held in place with faceted rivets. There is a wooden box that fits inside the hammered copper humidor box to hold the cigars or tobacco and keep it off the metal. There is also a lid that fits perfectly down inside the box with a round handle. I believe this to be a later addition.
This humidor is considered to be in very good to excellent condition as there are no cracks, chips or dents to the metal. Some areas of patina are weaker than others but it is original as found. The inside shows hardly any patina wear. The humidor is signed with the "The-Craftsman-Workshops-Gustav-Stickley" impressed mark along with the "ALS IK KAN" symbol impressed mark. This humidor is early as it was made 1901-1905.
