This vintage advertising piece is a souvenir of the Stork Club and comes from a time when it was quite fashionable to only be seen smoking with a cigarette holder. The advertising on the side of the cardboard cone has the 53rd St., New York address and the name of Sherman Billingsley, the manager and owner of the ritzy nightclub. It has a plastic mouthpiece and the cone portion appears to have a brass edge. This is probably from the earlier years of the Stork Club, mis-1930's into the late 1940's even though the business was active until the mid 1960's.
It measures about 4 1/8" in length and is in good condition with light wear. There is no discoloration from the heat of the tobacco but there is light crease wear and some sort of debris in the plastic stem.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
