C.1900 GILT EDGE Cigar Box Label-Pristine Graphics of a Lovely Lady & Pastoral Scene
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1900 or so
ITEM: Found in a Victorian scrap book, here's a portion of a page containing a cigar box label (chromolithograph which is embossed) for GILT EDGE cigars. A lovely lady dressed in pink is bordered on either side by pastoral scenes.
CONDITION: The graphics of the label are still fresh as the back of the scrap book page is still attached to the label. The size of the label looks to be complete - you can see the embossing on the back along with the scrap book paper residue. It does look like the back extra paper might be able to be peeled off. Some light surface markings to the left and right of the label but nothing that really screams that there is something wrong.
SIZE: The page currently measures 8-1/8" x 4-3/4".
FINAL COMMENTS: Checking the Internet, I see that a completely pristine label of this design runs around $150. Here's a label that can be used in graphic reproduction for a far lesser cost!
