Description

    Rare Circa 1912 L6 Harvard Leather and Uncatalogued Leather Pennant. Some of the most unique and eye catching tobacco premiums of the early 20th Century are the large animal hide leathers adorned with athletes, flags, college seals or ladies as viewed by Artist Hamilton King. Offered is a "Harvard" leather hide from the L6 series measuring approx. 11-1/2"x 9-1/2" in size. The hand colored leather is not brittle, the embossed graphics depicting the same "Harvard" plus a rowing scene and a university building. Light surface damage, both front and back, at the outer areas is joined by small tack holes but no leather material is missing. Generally good condition. Also we have an uncatalogued pennant shaped piece adorned with the same graphics as the hide shaped item measuring 10" x 20"; it is not referenced in the American Card Catalog. This rarity does show its age with a semi-supple leather quality.

    Guide Value or Estimate: $1,000 - up.
