    Description

    Sunset Club Cigar Label. A lithographed and embossed 10" x 6.5" inner label picturing a group of very famous and important gentlemen sitting around a table sharing a cigar (Sunset Club of course) and champagne while the sun sets over the water in the background. What a group this is- the richest men in America circa the 1890s: George Pullman, the developer of the Pullman railroad sleeper car; Levi Leiter, a Chicago businessman and co-founder of Marshall Field and Company; Lyman J. Gage, financier and secretary of the treasury under McKinley and Roosevelt; Philip Danforth Armour, founder of the slaughterhouse and meatpacking business carrying his family name; John D. Rockefeller, famous industrialist and philanthropist and founder of the Standard Oil Company; Andrew Carnegie, philanthropist and founder of the Carnegie Steel Company. There's no evidence that these men ever gathered at one table to smoke a Sunset Club, but can you imagine the conversation if they had! Near mint condition. This label is listed as one of the "InStone 100" blue chip cigar labels.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
