Cuban antiques

…good grief I have loads of them!

I’ve been buying pre embargo cigar humidors and cabinets of all different shapes and sizes for years!

My office is overflowing with them…looks like a Cuban cigar museum ( too cool I hear you say:-))

Ceramic jars ( yes blues and browns) glass jars ( yes yes I have the Benson one as well!) Bakelite jars ( these are the best of all..Ramon and Partagas) Tronquitas and barrels…they are all proudly on display.

Photographs of Che and Fidel ( smoking cigars of course) …all originals….post cards,price lists books and mags..loads of them:-)

Thanks goodness Christoph called today and asked me to send a consignment of antiques to the new La Casa del Habanos in Hamburg:-) Our shop in Hamburg is soooo big …I may even have to head back to Havana to bring back more antiques !

Michelle is so happy as I almost had her desk covered in pre embargo humidors! So shipping starts tomorrow and if you visit Hamburg from next week,the shop should have a nice Cuban feel to it….at last.

Well,I’m off on a field trip to visit my Turmeaus gold medal specialist in Havanas shops in Liverpool and Chester for a couple of days,looking forward to seeing some of my regular customers for a cigar or two.

If you need me I’m on email…back in London offices on Friday:-)
