Very Rare Antique Tebson Embossed Cigar Label, Brooks & Co's, Red Lion, Pennsylvania 1900s - 1920s

8" x 7 1/4" ~

This was a very popular cigar brand that started in the early 1900s. By 1930 they had 5 factories going and employed hundreds of workers in each and helped establish PA as a prominent player in tobacco growing and manufacturing. The road where the factories were located is still called "Cigar Row" This town still celebrates, last I knew, New Year's Eve by raising a large cigar at midnight. Honestly, it might take me hours to research a product especially ones with a storied history but little neat facts like these make it all worthwhile to me.

This is the company that also made "Have a Sweet" and "Canadian Club" see in store. 

These are very rare and collectible, especially in this condition. Please make sure you grab one of these from this American icon before they are gone forever as we won't be seeing these again. This was the early version of the label before they added the wood grain look. It does have minor corner wear but you would never see it in a frame. Please look at pictures and videos and judge for yourself.

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 Rare Antique Vintage Tebson Embossed Cigar Label, Brooks & Co's, Red Lion, Pa 1900s - 1920s is a sensational customer favorite, and we hope you like it just as much.
