1889-1893 N353 Consols Cigarettes "Portraits of Ladies of the White House" Complete Set (25)

Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $1,066.50

Complete set of twenty-five cards from the N353 "Portraits of Ladies of the White House" series. Issued over a period of several years with Consols Cigarettes, these cards feature portraits of the First Ladies (and in some cases the niece, daughter, or sister of the President) set inside an oval frame against a tan, patterned background with identification of the subject at the bottom. The reverse features a checklist of the subjects along with an advertisement for the manufacturer underneath. Condition is fifteen Ex to Ex-Mt, seven Vg to Vg-Ex, and three lesser. While many nonsport sets are dedicated to the Presidents of the United States, this rare nineteenth-century tobacco issue is one of the few series devoted exclusively to their wives and family members. Total: 25 cards. Reserve $200. Estimate $400+. SOLD FOR $1,066.50
