Paper Plug Tobacco Tag Poster
The plug tobacco tag was an early means of establishing brand
identity in a commodity market. A small paper label was pressed
onto each portion of plug tobacco. Easily produced, there were
thousands of brands of plug tobacco in the nineteen century. This
remarkable 18" x 26" poster displays several hundred
of the thousands of tags in the 30 year collection of Bill Pollard
of Aldie, Virginia. Subjects include animals, blacks, politicals,
railroads, beverages and the wide gamut of other attractive designs.
We know of no other published reference information on paper plug
tags.(Stock number 070tagposter2) SOLD OUT
