http://cgi.ebay.com/THE-COURTSHIP-OF-LADY-NICOTINE-HUMIDOR-BOOK_W0QQitemZ170284848818QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCollectibles_Tobacciana?hash=item170284848818&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2|65%3A3|39%3A1|240%3A1318

[color="#ffffff"]This Great Colt Humidor was made by the Colt Plastics Division. At one time they produced civilian products such as electrical outlets and buttons, all imprinted with the famous Colt logo. This rarely-seen “The Courtship of Lady Nicotine” humidor is made of bakelite, a plastic material that was highly popular in the 1930s. It has been decorated with a geometric Art Deco design on the front and back, the  front opens to reveal a set of compartments for cigars (or cigarettes), a lighter or matches and a striker that could – in a pinch – also be used as an ashtray. Two compartments can be removed,(ashtray and striker) as shown. This is an ORIGINAL, as shown by the imprint of the words “COLT’S PATENT FIREARMS MFG. CO HARTFORD CONN” found when the striker compartment is removed. This “book” measures 6 1/2 inches tall, five inches across and 1 3/8 inches thick. The Colt Plastics Division didn’t last long and was sold during World War II as the company concentrated on gun manufacturing for the military. [/color]
