This amazing Display Stand is a quintessential Art Deco Advertising Art Piece. It dates back to circa 1925 and was made by Rademacher. It was advertising for the "Oberst 3 1/3" Cigarettes of Waldorf-Astoria. It has beautiful bold colors and strong lines. The Waldorf-Astoria-Zigarettenfabrik (English:Waldorf-Astoria Cigarette Factory) was a German tobacco company, established by Emil Molt and several other partners on January 1, 1906. It was named after Johann Jakob Astor, born in 1763 in Walldorf, who after emigrating to the United States became the richest man in the United States. The company was successful and employed around 1,000 people in 1919. However, it experienced difficulties in the second half of the 1920s due to outdated production methods and the global economic situation, and a competing trust took over a large portion of the shares.
