Maker Congress Cigar Company

Maker Details The Congress Cigar Company run by Sam Paley. Sam Paley's wife, Goldie Drell Paley, appeared in Spanish costume on cigar box interior and exterior images. Liberally translated from Spanish, "La Palina" is derived from "the female Paley", hence the portrait used in marketing the product.

Summary Good

Assessor Hannah Lartz

Notes The top of the box has many scratches, an X through the portrait made with what looks like graphite, and much of the paper has worn away from the edges of the box. The top of the box is warped and does not close completely. Inside of the box some of the paper is ripped that lines it, and a few stain spots dot the bottom of the box.
