PLEASE NOTE CHANGE TO CATALOGUE HEADING AND DESCRIPTION. THIS IS A UNIQUE PIECE OF ORIGINAL ARTWORK, NOT A STANDARD ADVERTISING SIGN.

The round display measures 10" in diameter and features a lifelike pair of hands holding a pack of Fatima Cigarettes surrounded by the words "Fatima - Thank You". The artwork is rendered in what appears to be oil paint on cardboard. A period application of varnish shows some surface crazing from age. Framed. EX condition.
