Masterpieces of early commercial art, the early twentieth-century labels that once adorned cigar boxes encompassed a wide range of artistic vignettes. Admired for their fine detail and decorative flourishes, they included images of lovely ladies, handsome cowboys and sailors, dogs, eagles, racehorses and other miniature works of art. Many and varied cigar brands from around the world are represented in this fine collection.
