Rare three-panel die-cut cardboard display in promotion of Joan of Arc Cigar. The largest of the three pieces (20.5 x 32) features a colorful illustration of Joan of Arc on horseback, with the text reading "Joan of Arc Cigar - 'Answers The Call'." The two smaller panels (each 13.75 x 32 inches) picture an illustration of a full box of Joan of Arc Cigars, along with different vignettes of gentleman enjoying a smoke, including one panel which depicts golfers in a colorful scene. It must be noted that this is not a tri-fold display. All three pieces are separate, each with its own individual easel back. Obviously, they could be displayed alongside each other like a tri-fold piece, but they also offered the retailer the flexibility to display them in various locations throughout the store. All of the pieces display light handling wear commensurate with their age and former use, including minor border flaws, which do not detract in the least from their overall Excellent to Mint appearance. Total: 3 pieces. 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).
