    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.

    The resulting auction of my property overwhelmed me. I want to thank Tom Slater and the Heritage team for a very satisfactory experience and profitable result with my historical consignment.
