ReneesTreasureTroveRenée's Treasure Trove is located in Oakville, Ontario

An oval shaped, tin-glazed, pipe humidor in forest green with brown, white, light green & white blended accents. The separately cast & applied pipe on the lid acts as a handle. Detachable lid has 2 small chips under the edge while the body has one small rim chip, some crazing in the interior and one small chip on one of the 4 feet. Probably English in origin. It measures approx. 7 inches wide by 6 1/4 inches high. The lid still has the sponge inside which was soaked to keep the tobacco moist. Displays nicely and none of the chips are visible when the lid is in place and do not distract from the presentation. There are several impressed numbers under the base (photo).

Circa 1920.
