Old Mill Cigarettes "Silks" Starlets of Stage
Imagine...you once got a prize for smoking! These cigarette silks or premiums were from Old Mill Cigarettes and they were placed in packs of cigarettes to keep you smoking their brand until you had a complete set. These 6 silks feature pictures of beautiful women, what man wouldn't want to collect all of them! I say "man" because women didn't usually smoke when these were popular during the early 20th century.
Multiple colors, multiple starlets, each has the Old Mill Cigarette factory number from the 2nd district of Va....Virginia, I guess. Each silk measures approximately 2" x 3"
