This handmade cigar humidor is made with a combination of materials as wood veneer, bronze and mother of pearl pieces. For the outside decoration of the humidor we’ve used ebony veneer and for the image of Alexander the Great and for the flowers we’ve used mother of pearl piecies and bronze leaves which are handmade cutted and processed. The inside material is Spanish cedar This cigar humidor has the capacity to store up to 50 cigars and includes a hygrometer and humidifier.

I love all of your humidors. They are really an inspiration on what can be done with marquetry.
