This rare tin sign, designed to hang on the walls of a tobacco store, advertises for Liggett & Meyers' "Fatima" cigarettes, "The Turkish Blend." The sign features a beautiful Turkish women holding a pack of Fatima cigarettes, with the text below reading "Distinctively Individual." The sign measures an impressive 20 x 24 inches, making it a striking point-of-sale tobacco advertising piece and one that certainly would have attracted the attention of any customer passing by. The sign displays light wear, including three scratches on the central image area, as well as a few very minor surface imperfections on the brown border areas. This is a high-quality 1910-era tobacco-store advertising sign. In Very Good to Excellent condition, and in a condition far superior to most examples from this era. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
