Siglo’s Koi Fish Humidor

Gregory Mottola
Posted: January 18, 2012

If the tranquility of a koi fish pond can bring peace and balance to your garden, then perhaps a koi fish humidor can bring the same kind of harmony to your cigar smoking experience.

Siglo Accessories has captured the essence of these ancient, decorative fish by incorporating fluid marquetry designs for a soothing, minimalistic Feng Shui effect.

Each koi fish and lotus flower on the humidor’s surface is a detailed compilation of basswood and walnut placed in relief over a flowing Royal Poinciana wood grain designed to emulate a gently rippling pond.

The patterns have been skillfully inlaid to capture each fish’s graceful movement, and the outer clear-coat veneer is flawless, even under oblique lighting.

The interior of the humidor is made of Spanish cedar and holds 75 to 100 cigars, though the box can be repurposed for jewelry with a tray fashioned to hold watches, rings and cufflinks should your supply of smokes temporarily run out.

At a retail price of $880, it’s a relative bargain considering the level of craftsmanship, and a far less costly alternative to installing a koi pond in your home.
