- Made in USA
- Vintage: circa 1930’s
- Details: A very beautiful cigar inner box label for Canadian Club Brand cigars, manufactured by T. E. Brooks & Co. in Red Lion, PA. This label could be older than 1930’s as the T. E. Brooks & Co Canadian Club cigar is mentioned in a publication dated 1922 but best to be conservative. It is a highly detailed chromolithograph done by Consolidated Lithographing Corporation in Brooklyn, New York. The bright orange color immediately grabs your attention and the gorgeous colors within the maple leaf, which is recognized worldwide as the symbol of Canada, is beautifully done here. There is also a crest with what looks to be a beaver on top, the official animal of Canada. The word-mark “Canadian Club” has a very ornate font and everything is edged by golden dots. This label is beautifully glossy, heavily embossed and gilded which I tried to show in the PICTURES because it makes it even more spectacular looking and a very expensive label to make. Really nice unused condition, suitable for framing, and recommended to maintain this condition.
