A hand crafted, hand painted wooden cigar purchased at the Padron factory down in Miami. It is signed by seven different members of the Padron dynasty. Beginning with the patriarch Jose who will turn 87 this year, it also includes his son Jorge's signature, and in descending order, Marco, Rodolfo, Jeffrey, Elizabeth, and Orlando. I regret that I was not able to get Jessica or Kassandra's ink, but I may possibly be able to make that happen at some point down the road.

I am hoping that in 20-25 years this piece of history appreciates considerably in value, and I am able to pass it on to someone who really appreciates what is surely destined to become vintage collectible tobacciania.....

My antique pipe cabinet with revolving shelf, probably from the 1930's or 1940's, I'm not for certain.....









Notice that the small ashtrays have no cigarette or cigar rests, making them intended for pipe tobacco ash and dottle.....





A SYROCO wood pipe rest with glass humidor.....

The cabinet is beautiful ! It's nice that it comes with 2 "flake saucers" :twisted: Now you can rub out two types of flake and let 'em dry in those before loading up to smoke !! :p

Michael, I never considered using them to dry tobacco prior to loading a bowl, I just used them as ashtrays. :)

See, they can "multi task" :p I have a saucer left from a set that I broke the cup that matched and it's my "flake saucer". Those look to be just right for that! Neat !! :p

Zach, any time you find yourself in N. Alabama, drop by for a bowl or three! Thanks for the kind words. Believe it or not, I purchased the pipe cabinet for around $65. It is in great shape to be of the age it is.

Do I see an Aristocob atop that cabinet?
George, yes you are correct. I really like the old Aristocob design, and wish someone would reintroduce a similar pipe. They are on the small side, but they are ideal flake pipes. Regrettably, the cob inserts are going nowdays on ebay for $7 to $10 each, but that is no more expensive than buying a brand new MM cob, so the cost to smoke the pipe is still not outrageous. The cob inserts have a small steel disc inserted to help prevent burnout, so they can go high mileage if one is cautious.

Just scored another of these very functional Dunhill humidors, which the wooden lid and gasket are in fantastic shape. This one has faceted corners, as opposed to my other, which is simply barrel shaped.....

Here are a few pics of my antique Royal Goedewaagen gouda cigar jar. I'm not exactly sure when it was produced, but it definitely has some age on it, judging from the humidifier underneath the lid.....

Here is a brown glass cigar ashtray owned by Roy DeMeo from the 1960's-1970's era. The second photo is a certificate of authenticity, which has been signed by his son Al DeMeo, and notarized in Wake County North Carolina in November 2009.
