Introducing a truly unique and rare find, the 1900s Antique Whistling Rufus Embossed Cigar Label! This vintage label is a true gem, featuring an iconic image of Rufus whistling at a country hoedown. Measuring 4 1/2 by 4 1/2 inches, this cigar label is in exceptional condition with only slight edge wear. We must admit, we are being picky here as this minimal wear would likely go unnoticed when displayed, but we want to ensure that you know exactly what you're getting. The rarity of this piece cannot be overstated; the majority of this cigar label have either suffered damage or serious edge discoloration. This particular label stands out for its pristine state, making it an extraordinary addition to any antique collection or display. We are thrilled to offer this remarkable piece and consider ourselves fortunate to have acquired it. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity; this may well be the last time you see such a rare item available in this condition, and at such a reasonable price. Order now and add a piece of history to your collection!

These won't be seen again unless collectors sell individual pieces, but it won't be at this price or condition likely. This is a special one!

Whistling Rufus was a famous turn-of-the-century song written and composed by Kerry Mills and published by F. A. Mills of New York, New York in 1899.

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 their 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.

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.
