    Description

    American Twins 1898 Cigar Label by American Lithographic Co. A colorful 4.25" x 4.5" outer label lithographed by Witsch & Schmitt of New York. The Spanish-American War took place in 1898 and gave rise to a major swell of patriotism in the United States. This label certainly capitalizes on this national pride with two beautiful women in red, white, and blue patriotic dress wearing caps posed in front of American and Cuban flags. The ladies' hair curls are nicely embossed, and there are gold embossed highlights on the title as well as several of the devices. Condition is excellent with just a tiny bit of surface soiling only visible when held at an angle.
