Although I am not a cigar smoker, I can appreciate the history of a good cigar.  Prior to Air Conditioners and Disinfectant technology, cigars were subjected to fluctuating temperatures and uncontrolled humidity conditions; hence creating bacteria filled tobacco.  Pretty bad, huh?

This particular smoking stand was created to preserve tobacco.  Copper was used because it was biostatic – simply explained, bacteria will not grow on copper.  This allowed the tobacco to remain fresh and bacteria free.
