Daniel Marshall has created a limited series of Treasure Chest's to commemorate the firms 20th Year designing and crafting Precious Wood Humidors. The DM workshop was established in 1982,
dedicated originally to make humidors for men's luxury gift retailer,
Alfred Dunhill of London.
The original DM Treasure Chest became a coveted collectors item in 1992 when it was introduced, becoming the first humidor of its kind. One collector was actor Arnold Schwarzenegger who bought it for his private office where it remains today. Arnold later allowed his Treasure Chest to be photographed for a layout that appeared in the May 1997 issue of Cigar Aficionado.
The remaining pieces from the original Treasure Chest collection were auctioned to benefit charity. In the ensuing years, copy attempts of this design were made by various, newly formed companies that began to make humidors following the launch of the highly successful Cigar Aficionado magazine.
This humidor collection incorporates important elements of function and style. The gently curving silhouette of the lid make the Treasure Chest an appealing way to care for precious cigars. This sensual shape transforms the rare burl wood into a pattern that appears in motion. The urge to caress this humidor cannot be resisted.
Designed to compliment any décor, each piece is masterfully crafted with intricate attention and detail, requiring over 200 individual steps and 6 months to create. Daniel Marshall's "1000 coat finish" provides permanent protection, luster and depth that shows off the natural beauty of the precious burl. French 24 kt gold quadrant hinges, security locks and tasseled keys assure generations of service.
Spanish cedar has been carefully selected for the interiors of these humidors providing the ideal environment and humidity stabilization to maintain and age fine cigars.
The collection will be individually inscribed with each pieces corresponding number from the series during final inspection.
Daniel Marshall Humidors come with a satisfaction guarantee and are fully warranted against manufacturing defects.
