German tobacco publicity in Dutch taste
5 August 2017
Recently we could buy from a antiquarian in Cologne a series of tobacco wrappers of German tobacco, dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth century. Rarely such inconspicuous printing matters have been preserved, but they give an important view on the tobacco trade and publicity. Striking to see how much influence the tobacco trade from Holland had on German tobacco wrappers. Over a dozen of these pictures are based on Dutch brands, displaying the connection between these two cultures.
