Antique Paper Cigar Rare "Cockade" World War II Cigar Flag/Fan


Unique, rare, unusual, conversational pieces, these WWII "Cockade" Cigar American Flag fans were very popular after the war. I have found out these are very rare, actually listed in the Flag Book as RARE, and are usually destroyed.

These fans were introduced in 1893 Columbian Exhibition in Chicago. The fanstyle is called "cockade" because when the top of the faux cigar is pulled up a full 360 degree fan reveals itself.

They Measure about 4" long x 4" flag fan and would be an added conservation piece in a shadow box with memories of our freedom.

My mother had these in her cedar chest in an old card box. So they have been kept pristine from water, wind and sun.

The cigars simply pull apart with the cigar as top and bottom - sliding out very carefully.

These are $65.00 each and I will pay for the shipping and insurance.

The most pristine will sell for the $65.00. I believe I have about 16 pieces - some not quite as pristine. If you would like to consider the less pristine, please email me and I can send pictures for your to approve.

These are made in Japan. (interesting) My mom said they opened the cigar to "wave" it during the parades on the streets when the war ended.

Any questions, please ask
