    Description

    Our Standard Sample Cigar Label by O. L. Schwencke, New York. Full color lithographed 8.5" x 6" inner label with heavily gold-embossed elements and border accents. A healthy young beauty, an alert male lion, and an American flag are the focus of this lavish graphic production. The symbolism here would suggest that "Our Standard" cigars were a product of the British-American Tobacco Company. Additional elements include a Cuban flag shield and a view of Havana's harbor. An excellent example of cigar label art from its heyday. Light browning to edges. Slightly worn corners with light soiling, else very fine condition.
