I got this vintage, probably antique, free-standing, floor model smoker’s stand and humidor at an auction sight unseen (other than one rather poor quality photo), so I had no clue what I was actually getting. Based on that photo, it seemed to be in pretty bad condition, and my fingers were crossed that it wasn’t just a piece of junk. (That’s happened before, and it’s a serious bummer.)
To my relief, it’s not at all a piece of junk, although it’s apparently been in storage with unregulated temperature for quite some time as the highly detailed paint job is pretty much worn off. The piece appears to have been primarily green with stenciling on all four sides and the top. At first glance, I thought the stenciling was perhaps a Pennsylvania Dutch pattern, but on closer look, I don’t know what it is.
Someone with good painting and stenciling skills could turn this into an adorable little piece. (Not me… I have zero aptitude for such things.)
There should be a big old ashtray in the middle but that’s missing. There’s a notch on either side to hold a pipe. The cabinet is metal lined, so originally was a humidor for tobacco and cigars.
Condition: As shown in the photos and the description above. Structurally it’s sound and very sturdy, although the door latch doesn’t quite work… It doesn’t seem to line up evenly. It is missing the ashtray that would have sat in the middle.
Dimensions: 20″W x 12″D x 25.5″H.
Price: $28.00, plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax for $1.54, for a total of $29.54. Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
Shipping & Delivery: Shipping this item is not recommended because the cost to value ratio would be prohibitive. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00. Shipping via USPS would be $20.00. Your best bet would be to pick it up at our office.
