19th Century Bronze French Humidor is an unusual find!  Cast from solid bronze in an intricate classical relief pattern, it is cylindrical rather than the typical rectangular shape, and features a domed acanthus rosette lid.  Inside, it has been lined in tin, and features a compartment concealed in the lid into which one could put a moisturizing agent or dessicant, as the local humidity would require, to keep one's cigars at optimum humidity!

Circa 1880s
