Poster advertising Hoffman House Cigars, depicting political and military figures including President William McKinley, Vice President Theodore Roosevelt, Admiral George Dewey and Gen. Nelson Miles, 1901. Chromolithograph, "Copyright 1901 by The Hillson Co. N.Y." (stated bottom right). Housed in period gilt frame with new archival backing and conservation glass. Size refers to overall dimensions. Interior hotel lobby scene where a tuxedoed vendor offers boxes of the Hoffman House "Bouquet Cigar" to luminaries of the day, all of whom smoke the cigar, which "Has Stood The Test For Years." Each is identified in type below (in addition to above: Chaucey Depew, Richard Crocker, Orville Platt, Winfield Schley, and William Sampson). Even age toning with minor damp stains in margins. Frame shows wear and paint loss, but accents the piece nicely.
One of the best political/historical advertising pieces we've offered!
