New Bulldog Humidor - Details and Marks
Another example of the ceramic bulldog humidor has surfaced with the incised mark XOMEX as shown here. This example also had the original Made in China label confirming its recent foreign manufacture. The inside of the piece is unglazed; there is a place for a sponge in the hat. No old counterpart was located.
This piece can be traced back to 1998 when it first started appearing in catalogs. Original retail price was $45-$60. It has frequently been offered as old in online auctions as well as in malls, shows and outdoor markets.
