Store Display Sign
Prince Albert Tobacco in Cans
Die Cut ~ 1920's
This unadorned sign turned a simple carton of Prince Albert cans into a store counter-top or font window display! It is "T" shaped, with the bottom tag designed to wedge into a row of Prince Albert Cans. Altogether, it is 8 ½ inches tall and 5 inches wide. Thick, stiff, slightly aged white cardboard with distinctive black printing. Outstanding patina. Classic tobacco Point of Sale merchandising item.
The large top portion of the sign proclaims, "It will pay you to take home a carton of Prince Albert $1____ (One Dozen Pocket Cans)." The storekeeper would write in the ¢ on the blank part with a black crayon. This was usually tucked into the top of a 12 pack carton of Prince Albert in cans and set on the counter. If the merchant had more space, or if it was a front window style display, there would be many cans stacked pyramid style, with this sign in the top one.
If you have a case of Prince Albert, or even a few cans, this makes an impressive thin shelf display. Perfect Condition. We pack it securely and mail it to you First Class U.S. Postal.
