Description



These colorful and delicate tobacco premiums –  distributed as prizes with cigarettes during the 1910-14 period – are constructed of soft, felt-like cloth. The premise behind the novelties was that they would be welcomed by smokers' wives as creative room and furniture decorations, and they were doubtless employed in that fashion in many American homes. This all-different array of the delicate pieces (which includes several seldom-encountered types) reflects quality in preservation throughout. 
Generally fresh and barely circulated, EX to NM condition (a few lesser).
