This is a rare and fantastic piece of silk from the early 1900s distributed by The Imperial Tobacco Company to be used as an insert in their brands of cigarettes. These were cut and distributed with the purchase of cigarettes woman would collect and sew onto items. I have seen them made into memory boxes, doilies, pillows and collected individually. A sheet like this is very hard to find and it has been preserved and sealed on Art Board within plastic.

This uncut silk sheet featuring the 55 countries and an animal for each. The silks individually measure approximately 3" x 2.5” and feature The Animal, Country flag and small series # in the left hand corner of each.

The uncut sheet has a total of 165 silks – 55 per set equaling 3 complete sets.

Condition: Excellent 95%.  Sealed in plastic on Art board unfortunately was pushed back into a deep closet. There is damage to the corners and a tears in plastic – one tear on left near bottom which also damaged a few of the cards – about 7-8. Fraying at top and bottom with outer edges of silk are original finish and uncut. Please look closely at all pictures.

Shipping Note: The shipping for this item is based on folding the art board into 3 or 4 and shipping in a large box. If you only wish to receive the silk without the art board. Let me know prior to payment and I will recalculate shipping based on a small box.
