Circa 1910 advertising sign issued in promotion of Pride of Virginia Sliced Plug Tobacco. The colorful image pictures a beautiful woman wearing a large and decorative hat, with the caption reading "Pride of Virgina Sliced Plug." An illustrated tin of Sliced Plug Tobacco appears in the lower left corner. The sign (20.5 x 25.5 inches; visible dimensions), which appears to be printed on paper stock, displays a number of tears, three horizontal folds, and small area of dark discoloration (possibly tape residue from a former repair of a tears) in the upper right corner. In apparent Good condition, but it presents at a level higher than that suggested by its technically accurate grade. Matted and framed to total dimension of 27 x 33 inches. The substantial size/weight of this item requires that there will be a shipping charge for this lot (which will vary depending upon where it is being shipped). The shipping charge will be billed separately from the auction invoice. Reserve $200. Estimate (open).
