Description

Handsome French placard, advertising “Altoids”- like mint pastilles, and showing a dandy offering the mints to cigarette smoking women. This is the earliest image we have ever seen of women smoking in public, something considered socially taboo at the time. Beautiful lithography, printed on cardstock. One corner bend, light dampstain to far edges.
