Two Humidors - Pretty Cool!

I recently moved to Charleston, SC.... and one of the cool things about living here is that it is an OLD city.... Stumbled across these in my travels and have added them to my "collection"....

Both are copper lined.... use to be the mainstay back in the day.... I'm sure they never heard of the paper test.

Enjoy - And, Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!!!

This one is circa 1920.... (I wonder if a dog chewed the corner or if the BOTL's wife made him quit smoking)....

This one is circa 1940.... Note the humidification technology that's been added....

    Very nice. I love old furniture like this.

    My grandfather had one similar to these. I always figured the copper sheet lining it was for pipe tobacco storage but I guess it would work for cigars as well. I just don't understand what function the copper served.
