For sale is a rare antique vintage Thompsons' Embossed Cigar Label from Tampa, FL dating from the 1910s-1920s. Made by famed cigar makers Thompson & Co., this is one of the earliest and largest mail-order cigar companies in the USA that started in Florida in 1915. You'll be impressed with the intricate gold embossed label that even utilized real gold flakes, making it a truly special find for any collector. Cigar labels like these are an epitome of antique advertising; they showcase the beautiful graphics that can only be achieved through lithography and embossing, something that modern printing lacks. Measuring 8.5 x 7 inches, this art piece has been kept well-preserved, and you can now add it to your collection or use it to elevate your home decor. Buy this rare piece of history today!

Cigar Labels are a reminder of a bygone era but the amazing lithography process is unparalleled even to this day in my opinion. Museums and Art Institutes have galleries dedicated to them and more and more of them and collectors are seeking these out to preserve the history. Once the limited supply for sale is gone and on display with collectors or in galleries then they will be very difficult to acquire.

Imagine this amazing antique advertising hanging as home decor in any room of your home instead of a museum!

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.

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.
