This is a cigar vending machine that we restored. It was made by the Cigaromat Service Corp. some time in the 1950s. They were available in either a smaller tabletop 3-selection style, or like this floor model 6-selection style. The pull handles are made of Bakelite. The graphics are ours and are not original.
This is an interesting machine as it dispensed a single cigar at a time. It was probably placed beside cigarette vending machines in the lobbies of restaurants, theaters and nightclubs.
