Out of the Humidor

CA Readers
From the Print Edition:
Linda Evangelista, Autumn 95

(continued from page 7)

The inscription on the latter is in Czech and translates:

For the 50th Year

Our Grandfather
Karel Tayerla

It was bought in 1915.

These items were discovered as I helped Mildred Vainer clean and sell her house after her sister Henrietta died in May 1994.

We had planned to sell them, but I saw you on the CNN program "Pinnacle" and was so impressed! I told Mildred about you and we decided it would be special to send her grandfather's cutter to you as you are a collector of cigar accessories. We thought the boxes and the holder might be of interest to you too.

Mildred Vainer is 87. She was eight and her sister, seven, when they gifted their grandfather with the cutter. Neither sister married and they lived together until now. Mildred must go into a home now and it has been a sad thing to close their house and move on.

It has made her happy to pass something on to someone who will find some joy in its possession.

I bought a copy of Cigar Aficionado to get your address. It is a classy magazine as would befit the height of smoking elegance.

Wishes for reaching more "Pinnacles."
