Antique Vintage Elektra Embossed Cigar Label, Homage Richard Strauss 1900s - 1930s

7" x 6 1/8" ~

This label is unique in the paper stock it is printed on. Absolutely beautiful! It is also paying homage to the Greek mythology of Electra as the play Richard Strauss and Hugo von Hofmannsthal collaborated on in 1903 was an instant success and was and still is one of the most frequently performed Greek Mythology Operas.

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.
On the fence about this Antique Vintage Elektra Embossed Cigar Label, Homage Richard Strauss 1900s - 1930s? Don't be. Let our satisfaction guarantee address your concerns.
