Description

    1912 S110 Military Generals Silks Pillow Case Premium. 1912 S110 Military Generals Silks Pillow Case Premium. Offered is a highly coveted 23" x 23" silk cloth premium made available by Helmar Cigarettes in 1912. This beautiful addition to any vintage collection was acquired in exchange for the sum of 100 coupons found inserted in cigarette packages. That was a grand amount at that time which naturally required a great deal of smoking. The redemption program also offered a version of baseball players that is rare and yet is seen more often than this beauty. The images are beautifully rendered and are surrounded by foliage, elements of war and the statue of liberty. This example has been professionally framed and matted to an overall size of 20" x 29." Colors which normally fade with time have remained deep and saturated. The five pictured generals are Ulysses S. Grant, George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Col. "Buffalo Bill" Cody and Napoleon Bonaparte. Each soldier is surrounded by a red cross-hatch border which served as a guide for attaching the individual silks. Although there are no silks attached, this border only adds to the overall design and visual appeal. The cloth has some creasing and light soiling. A ready-to-hang display piece for your collection room or man cave.
