Listing Detail Tabs

Gorgeous selection of 6 vintage cigar box labels from late 1800s & early 1900s

Guaranteed old & original
Not reproductions

Excellent unused condition
Beautiful, intricately detailed, embossed, accented with gold metallic

Would look FABULOUS framed

CLINT FORD, BANKER'S BOUQUET, CORNWALL ARMS, & both BLUE RIBBON labels are beautiful examples of stone lithography. Printed with giant Bavarian stone carvings (using 1 stone for each colour) - an expensive, labour-intensive process. Each could involve a dozen highly skilled specialists a month to create

That arduous & costly process surely could not be duplicated today, making them truly unique collectibles

Popularity of cigar smoking surged during US Civil War. Wooden boxes containing cigars were branded with maker's name in the 1870s. Cigar shops & saloons displayed boxes with lids open to show contents. Manufacturers vied to have most attractive labels to lure smokers to their product

Printed on long fiber (like linen) rag stock paper - acid free paper that appears clean & bright with no signs of aging

Labels range in size from 12x12cm - 6x13cm
Mint condition, unused
(they are loose, not pasted down)
