Handsome Meriden Alhambra (Greek Key) Humidor w/ Silver Lid
I adore this shape that the master craftsmen and Meridn made. The humidor pinches in ever-so-slightly in the center between the Greek Key border and rest of the pattern. The sterling silver lid is marked Wilcox and is monogrammed on the handle.
The Greek Key motif links itself around the top portion of this tobacco holder – making this easily identifiable design completely recognizable. The rest pof the pattern continues down the humidor with chains of hobstar and bands of cane. The base is finished with a rayed star base. Please not how deep the cutting is on the base photo – the miters easily going into the more than half the thickness of the blank.
The humidor is in perfect condition and measures 7 1/4″ and 3 3/4″ wide. The gorgeous combination of silver and cut glass along with one of the most desirable patterns of the period makes this piece highly sought after.
