Rare Antique Vintage Dante Alighieri Embossed Cigar Label, 1900s - 1920s

8 3/4" x 8 1/4" ~

This is a very rare label and unlikely to ever see these again. Definitely take advantage of my prices while I have these available!

Dante Alighieri is widely considered the "father" of the Italian language and one of the greatest Middle age poets. His depictions of Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory inspired art and culture till the present day.

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.

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 Dante Alighieri Embossed Cigar Label, 1900s - 1920s was built with people like you in mind. Something to keep you happy. Every. Single. Day.
