Rare circa 1910 advertising sign in promotion of Sovereign Cigarettes. The colorful illustration pictures a beautiful woman wearing an elegant crown and a necklace that reads "Sovereign." The text along the base reads "Sovereign Cigarettes 'Good Tobacco never harmed anyone'." Printer's marks along all four borders indicate that this is most likely a proof, which would explain its remarkable state of preservation. Aside from a very small, light area of discoloration next to the "S" in "Sovereign" at the base, the piece remains in apparent Near Mint condition. 11 x 17 inches (visible dimensions). Matted and framed to total dimensions of 18.5 x 24.5 inches. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
