Antique Canadian Club Embossed Cigar Label, Maple Leaf, Brooks & Co's, Red Lion, PA 1920s - 1930s

8 1/4" x 7 " ~

This is the less common second version of this popular label. Has some minor corner wear please see pictures and videos. I am clearing them out and have them priced the same as the mint common ones.

The Maple leaf is really neat if you look at it closely in pictures. Very talented! Wonderful shape and priced amazing!

This was a very popular cigar brand that started in the early 1900s. By 1930 they had 5 factories going and employed hundreds of workers in each and helped establish PA as a prominent player in tobacco growing and manufacturing. The road where the factories were located is still called "Cigar Row" This town still celebrates, last I knew, New Year's Eve by raising a large cigar at midnight. Honestly, it might take me hours to research a product especially ones with a storied history but little neat facts like these make it all worthwhile to me.

This is the company that also made "Have a Sweet" and "Tebson" see in store.

Amazing Gold embossed label. Most companies at the time used real gold flakes in the embossing.

Imagine hanging this over 100-year-old antique advertising on your wall as home decor in any room!

Cigar labels show you what antique advertising is all about with the wonderful graphics that Lithography provided that modern printing just can't reproduce. This was a lost art after the 1920s unfortunately.

My pictures seriously don't do it justice. These had to be done on heavy paper stock which makes them stay vibrant and new looking for a long time.

This item has reached full antique status.

Most of these artists were very good but desperate for work during that era and got paid very little and received no recognition for their work. Unfortunately, the majority of these artists will remain unknown but we can keep their art alive forever.
The Antique Canadian Club Embossed Cigar Label, Maple Leaf, Version 2, Red Lion, PA 1920s - 1930s is evocative, to say the least, but that's why you're drawn to it in the first place.
