About this Item

Fine. See scans. New York: P. Lorillard Company (Lorillard Tobacco Company), 1911 and 1912. A scarce, original Zubelda Cigarette miniature Persian rug tobacco insert premium, with full fringe, in Fine condition. In wood frame (frame has one small nick) with glass plate, laid on tan-stained rice paper. See scans. In 1911, the P. Lorillard Company issued a new Turkish blend cigarette, named Zubelda after the wife of the Khedive of Egypt (a Viceroy, or Governor, of Egypt) at that time. As a promotional premium, Lorillard issued miniature Persian rugs, sometimes inserted in packages, sometimes send in redemption of inserted coupons. Overall rug dimensions, including fringe, 4 5/16" by 2 1/4". Outside frame dimensions 7 3/4" x 7 3/4". This is a particularly beautiful example of what Lorillard did; the subtle colors are very hard to capture in photographs or scans. The enlarged (close-up) scan, among the scans attached here, best represents the two dominant colors, blue-green and copper-russet-orange. The full fringe is present, and the rug is of woven thread, not nap. There is no Zubelda cigarette stamp on this example; about half of the surviving examples do not have that inked imprint, possibly as a function of whether the piece was a box-included premium or a coupon-redemption premium. Please see all scans. L40n. Bookseller Inventory # 60650
