While I was wandering around the city looking for something to get for mother's day, I came upon this shop selling antiques and new but vintage looking products. They had all sorts of stuff like luggage, some furniture and leather goods. One thing that caught my eye was this metallic box, the lady at the store couldn't tell me much about this particular item, (although she was very knowledgeable about most of the other stuff), she did say it was for cigars. I wrote down the little markings I read on it and did a search when I got home. Turns out it is indeed a cigar box, pewter, made by James Dixon and Sons. I never heard of them but I'm in the process of looking it up online.
Anyway, as far as storage goes can anyone tell me how a metallic, pewter box holds up? I've never had a proper box for my cigars but then again, I've never had enough of them at the same time to fit one. I usually just keep them in my camera dry box or in a glad wrap and let one out a few days before I intend to smoke it. I'll probably get the box based on the aesthetics of it, if I can find out more online and verify its authenticity. I probably won't use it for cigars, but I'd still like to find out if it would be any good for that purpose.
I forgot I couldn't post links, here are some pics. The first two are of what the box looks like, the third is the condition it's in.
