8 1/2" x 6" ~

This is the original version of the large label which was changed later. They have slight edge wear and or discoloration. There aren't a lot of these left out there and most have either been severely damaged and also most of the supply of these was attacked by mold decades ago. 

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 and embossing provided that modern printing just can't reproduce. This was mostly a lost art after the 1920s unfortunately. 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. 

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.
