nice to see the older tins with contents survive I have a collection of old tobacciana items but concentrate now on collecting gold and colourful tipped which were obviously aimed at ladies and gentleman from high society and sold in all major cities around the world the shorter cigarettes for ladies were generally smoked using the long cigarette holders

Many thanks for the pictures, I am always fascinated to see  antiquarian tobacco live and in the flesh...

 ...I was struck with how fat those Fabians look, reminds me of the Camel Wides I used to smoke.

Are they round or oval?

Appears to be a sample tin as it contains one of each different tip, is it?

Delightful adcopy...

...not mine but found online since I went looking due to being totally unfamiliar with the brand as I'm more geared toward pipe tobacco moreso than the ciggies.

 

Thanks for sharing!

 Hi auburn,

Can't find much on the Fabian Cigarette Co, except a couple of adverts in magazines. The records show that they were manufacturing during the 1920s period geared to a specific market. I would imagine that the cigarettes would be priced way beyond the means of  your "Player's or Woodbine man. This was the Art Deco period which is a style of visual arts & design which first appeared in France prior to WW1.

(Can someone turn the pictures please )

hi bacco

I presumed around that period the target was at the wealthy ( ladies especially ) you would not see them lighting these up walking down the street they were no doubt for retiring after dinner to the drawing room while showing there guests what they brought back from there grand tour or something like that

 Hi auburn,

Your "Tuberette" photo's came through email. These were produced by Benson & Hedges and quite unusual with the tube already fitted in the cigarette. Not something I have come across before and can't find any reference to them and wonder if they were made for the American market. Has anyone come across these before????
