    Description

    Tomahawk Plug Tobacco: Fantastic Chromolithograph Die Cut Advertising Sign. 17" x 25". The heavy cardboard sign is diecut and printed to resemble a painter's palette. The front pictures an Indian on the ground with another Indian holding a tomahawk in one hand and a recently cut scalp in the other hand. A group of tribesmen of the slain Indian are approaching by horse in the background. Across the top is "Chew Tomahawk Plug" and "P. Lorillard & Co. / Jersey City, N.J." is along the bottom. The back of the sign has color printed wood graining and the trademark of Donaldson Brothers Lithographers of New York. Five small mounting holes, even darkening, light chipping along the edges and several tiny paint spots, else very good. Extremely attractive and rare.
