1950s vintage genuine DUK-IT by McDonald Products Corp.
Walnut & Leather Pipe rack & humidor

Very Fine Condition

DUK-IT genuine walnut 8-pipe rack with tobacco holder, an incredible find for the man who likes to display his pipes

Description:
· This very handsome, large pipe rack and humidor belongs to my Dad. He bought it new during the 1950s and used it to store his pipes and tobacco. He stopped smoking around 1960 and this piece has been in storage in his climate controlled home ever since.
· This is a genuine “DUK-IT” brand pipe rack\/humidor made by McDonald Products Corp of Buffalo, New York. It is made of Genuine American Walnut.
· It has room for 8 pipes, four on each side of the central humidor.
· The humidor is made of glass with the outside covered in fine leather with stitching at the top and bottom.
· The lid of the humidor is made of solid walnut
· The knob on the humidor lid appears to be made of clear orange bakelite plastic.
· The two pedestals on the pipe racks are also covered in leather. There is also leather trim around the base of the piece.
· It still has the original McDonald Products Corp. manufacturer’s sticker on the bottom (See photo) and another original sticker certifying that it is made of genuine American Walnut
· The pipe rack and the humidor both have their original felt bottoms.
· This is a large piece measuring 8” tall by 12” long by 6” wide.
· A very classy and handsome vintage piece.

Condition:
· The entire piece is in Very Fine Condition
· All the wood is in wonderful shape with very little wear and just some very light surface crazing on a few parts of the clear finish on the surface of the wood There are no cracks, dents, nicks, breaks or other flaws.
· The leather is also in excellent shape, supple and without flaws except for one tiny surface abrasion (1\/8”) on the band at the bottom of the rack
· The glass humidor is in very fine condition with NO chips, cracks or other flaws.
· Even the little bakelite knob on the top of the humidor is in near mint condition with no flaws.
· The felt bottom on the humidor is in near mint condition without any flaws. The felt on the bottom of the rack is complete and in very good condition. There are some small areas on the edges that have come unglued.

· This would make a handsome addition to your home or a perfect gift for someone special!

Note added 10\/11\/09 - I have just reduced the original selling price by 10%

SPECIAL NOTE TO BUYERS: Etsy’s listing program does not allow sellers to adjust shipping costs based on the buyer’s location. We have to list one flat rate that covers ANYWHERE in the United States, including Alaska & Hawaii. Therefore, buyers who live closer pay more than they should. I do not think this is fair to buyers who live closer to me. If you are interested in purchasing this item and live in the Mountain, Central or Eastern Time zone, PLEASE contact me with your zip code and I will quote you actual charges for shipping to your location
