Vintage 1936 Chesterfield Cigarettes wood and copper advertising letterpress printers block.
This is a large block measuring 6 inches wide x almost 8 1/8 inches tall. Wood backing is just under 7/8 of an inch thick. Has a metal loop at the top, so it can be hung on a wall.
Copper plate is nailed to the wood block and features two women seated near a small table, which is under a framed portrait hung on the wall. One of the women is holding a pack of Chesterfield Cigarettes up, as if to offer the other woman a smoke.
Chesterfield well that's different
