Circa 1910 advertising sign issued in promotion of Piedmont Cigarettes, housed in its original wooden frame. The colorful image pictures a beautiful woman dressed all in red, with the caption reading "10 for 5¢ Piedmont The Cigarette Of Quality." An illustrated package of Piedmont Cigarettes appears in the upper left corner. The original wood frame echoes the advertising and bears the engraved lettering "Piedmont Cigarettes" along the bottom front border. The sign (20 x 34 inches), which is printed on thick cardboard stock, displays a few moderate abrasions, light spotting, and a number of small edge tears caused by original backing nails. In Very Good condition overall. Framed to total dimensions of 24.5 x 38.5 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).
