A woman sips a fine nectar, drawing a comparison to the fine
cigar. Cigar label art was mass produced between 1880 and 1920
using the lithographic process. The reason for this new form of
advertising was the great demand of tobacco combined with the
expansion into new markets because of the railroads across the USA.
The art was used to draw attention to one brand over another and
reflected the values and inclinations of the times.
