ANTIQUE (1916) MINING

CIGARETTE CARDS

(FULL SET OF 50 ORIGINAL CARDS)

 

Cigarette cards are trade cards issued by tobacco companies to stiffen cigarette packs and advertise the brands. They were popular from around 1875 up until the 1940s.

  

This original set of 50 cards from 1916 was produced by W.D. & H.O. Wills who were one of the first companies in the UK to include advertising cards with their cigarettes. It covers mining of all types around the world including such diverse subjects as pitchblende in Cornwall and turquoise in Persia. It depicts a mining scene on the front with information about it on the back. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​An unusual collector's item and very educational - providing a snapshot of mining around the time of the First World War.

​​​​​​​Supplied in five plastic wallets. The set is not in great condition: the cards have clearly been used and one has been marked with a pen. Its condition would be best described as fair.
