    Circa 1888 Allen & Ginter N17 Naval Flags Advertising Poster. An heroic image of the United States Frigate "Chicago" slicing through the surf takes center stage of this gorgeous poster compiling images of all fifty cards from this tobacco set. Many of the cards feature portraits of admirals along with the flags, or images of the ships at sea. Geo. Harris & Sons is identified as the lithographer at lower right. The stellar artwork shines through the few condition flaws, which include a horizontal crease that spans the width of the poster two inches from the top, and wear along the left border that manifests itself in brown staining and an inch-long tear. Border paper loss at lower left and bottom are quite benign, as is a small rough patch at lower right. Size is 14.5x29.5".
