8 1/2" x 6 3/4 " ~

This is a rare one in this condition. I think these might be the last ones in this condition left for sale in the world. This is a highly collectible Florida artifact and is highly coveted by Florida colleges Arts Departments and Museums as numerous have them displayed. I guarantee those who are missing it and see this will grab one. The little cigar bands with just the name on them sell anywhere from $6 - $12 if that gives you an idea of how collectible this company is and they are much more common which isn't very. I can't find a lot of information about the company besides the timeframe they operated and the displays in galleries.

I always have so much trouble deciding on pricing on all these items that I am the only one with. I really try pricing them fairly for the high-quality artwork they are and for how rare they are but a lot of times I see what others sell comparables for of the really rare stuff and I question myself if I am being silly and selling this stuff way too low. I am pricing it like I would have when I was more involved in 2007. Maybe I need to change my store name to Crazy Travis's Unreal Deals or This Guy is Stuck in 2007. Ok, that is my venting for the night. Thank you for listening! :3

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 Very Rare Antique Centrilla Embossed Cigar Label, Tampa, FL 1900s - 1920s is the yin, to your yang. You've found what you're looking for.
