    Description

    Caffé Berna Inner Proof Cigar Label. A ten-color lithographed 7" x 6" inner proof label featuring a beautiful nude woman in repose on a lace-trimmed pillow. The vignette is within a gold-trimmed crescent and our beauty is surrounded by pink roses. A smaller crescent bears the words "Tonico Digestivo" which may allude to the popular notion of a cigar as a digestive aid. Chaucer once wrote "That digestive [a cigar] has become to me as necessary as the meal itself." This label has been encapsulated and graded F 5 by GCLGS. From the Richard Revolinski Collection.
