Antique Vintage Irvin S. Cobb Embossed Cigar Label, "Duke of Paducah", KY 1900s - 1920s

8 1/2" x 7 1/2" ~

One of the most famous cigar smokers and writers ever! Even though he had lived in New York for decades before he earned his nickname "Duke of Paducah" he still had a strong connection to his Kentucky heritage. This guy, besides a cigar label, had a Warship in WWII named after him, and also the Illinois Central Railroad named a passenger train after him that went through his hometown after the war. Neat history of this American icon here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irvin_S._Cobb

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

Cigar labels show you what vintage 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.
Every product is unique, just like you. If you're looking for a product that fits the mold of your life, the Antique Vintage Irvin S. Cobb Embossed Cigar Label, "Duke of Paducah", KY 1900s - 1920s is for you.
