    FLORA DE LOUIS FROMMER ADELINA PATTI CIGARS 1883 ADVERTISING SIGN. This very early advertising sign for Adelina Patti Cigars is in excellent condition. Dated 1883 and approximately 28 ¼" by 33" it shows this vaudeville actress, who states, "I’m sure the cigars will be of so good a quality as to leave a pleasant recollection of their namesake.".In our first Provenance Auction we had several things from the Finger Collection that were attributed to Patti. A very unique cross category piece. This signage is extremely early for cigar advertising and quite a nice large size to be in such great condition. The border of the sign have been made to look like a wooden frame. What a great piece of advertising with wonderful display presence. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
