Attractive 1908 advertising sign issued in promotion of Mecca Cigarettes, housed in its original wooden frame. The colorful image pictures a beautiful, exotic woman of Middle Eastern origin holding a package of Mecca Cigarettes. The caption simply reads "Mecca Cigarettes. A 1908 copyright date appears in the lower left corner. The original wood frame echoes the advertising and bears the engraved lettering "Mecca Cigarettes" along the bottom front border. The sign (17.5 x 25.5 inches), which appears to be printed on thick cardboard stock, displays moderate wear, including light rippling, a water stain (approximately 2 x 8 inches) along the base, and repair to a few small tears and/or abrasions. In Very Good condition overall. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
