Garcia Grande Display - Electric Cigar Lighter
You just entered - The Garcia Grande Cigar Display Gallery. You'll also see some nice advertising to go along with the electric lighter display, and cigar counter top display. Enjoy.
Featuring - from the 1930's, vintage Garcia Grande tin cigar counter display, with electric lighter. This is called a combination display unit. It was the property of Garcia Grande Cigars Inc. out of New York City, New York. The unit was made by the Brunhoff Mgf. Co. out of Cincinnati, Ohio. Cigar shops would have this on a counter top, selling only, Garcia Grande cigars in the unit.
The display unit is good shape, with a working lighter, (seen below). It does have some light rust on the bottom, and a few marks on the sides. No dents on the unit as well. The unit could hold two boxes of cigars. You could add a second box on the back. To light your cigar, you would pull/hold down the toggle switch on the right, hold the head of the cigar against the lighter part on the left to light your cigar. The display unit is 9" wide x 9 3/4" deep x 8 1/2" high, at the highest point. The cord is also in good condition, and is over 9 feet long.
On the left is a 1930's or 40's store poster, advertising the Garcia Grande Corona cigar. The poster is 11 inches by 18 inches, with glue strips on the back. I found two of these together, the poster I have here is in the better shape of the two. Just a great find in this condition!
This is why it's hard to stop collecting. You find something you really like, and you keep adding more and more that relates to the main piece! Even the advertising, which sometimes, is harder to find.
Here's another find. Garcia Grande cigar credit/sales slip from 1934. Another paper item that's in good shape. See below.

Has a glass cover over the boxes with no cracks or chips, also has a glass cover on the top. The display box is made of tin, and it's painted to look like wood, which is real nice condition.
