Vintage BAGDAD CIGAR HUMIDOR Rough Ceramic, Metal Lid!

Vintage BAGDAD CIGAR HUMIDOR Rough Ceramic, Metal Lid! - eBay (item 310025911116 end time Feb-29-08 18:54:27 PST)

This vintage cigar humidor is ceramic with a metal lid and features a portrait of a man with a mustache and beard, fez and uniform. It says, "Bagdad." There is no other mark.

The glaze looks dirty, but it isn't. The marks are all in the glaze, possibly to look old? There are a couple dark rough spots on the bottom of the blue near the rim. It's just a very rough sort of glaze job, on purpose.

The ceramic has minor scratches and wear. I see what looks like a few hairline cracks inside the bottom, but the glaze there is undamaged, smooth and glossy. No cracks show outside.

The lid has three dark spots and other more minor marks on the upper side. The underside is duller with numerous marks and some wear where the container touches it around the rim.
