Rare Large Size Tobacco Leather - Indian Chief

Large format leather premium. Perhaps for use as pillow tops these leathers were issued by the American Tobacco Company in the first decade of the 20th century as a premium for coupons on Turkish Trophies and other cigarettes. This large (approx. 32" x 36") leather depicts an American Indian Chief. Burdick, in the American Card Catalog, describes this series as extremely rare and can only verify their existence based upon their listing on a coupon back. This item suffers from some fading, holes, and torn pieces. The leather has dried out somewhat. The flaws do not detract from the central image, a Native American in full headdress with claw necklace. This example would make an excellent framed display. (Stock number 003leather4) SOLD
