Lot 48). Polar Bear Tobacco Sign

$1,300.00
(Final Bid)

Polar Bear Tobacco Sign: 13.75 x 9.75″ scarce, early, embossed tin litho die-cut sign for Polar Bear brand tobacco (lithography by Kaufmann & Strauss). Displays quite nicely (as a C. 8/8-) although up close examination will reveal some non-offensive light oxidized speckling on upper surface (including rust spot at bottom edge of mouth and under right paw) w/ a little light scattered surface wear (critical grade C. 7.5/+). Note: finish was possibly clear coated long ago (looks natural) and originally had easel on back, which is no longer present. Nicely framed. Min. bid $150.
