Lot 145. Rare Circa 1910 Box for “Piedmont” CANDY Cigarettes. At a glance, this box appears to be a vintage package for Piedmont cigarettes. Although the top looks very much like a cigarette box, however, it has the word “candy” added – making it “Piedmont Style – Candy Cigarettes.” In addition, the manufacturer is the Gardner-Lucas Co. of New York, not American Tobacco or Liggett & Myers or S. Anargyros. The Gardner-Lucas logo is on the underside of the box, where “Gramps 1911” is lightly written in pencil. The box has a ½” split along one seam and is vg. The tray has part of a tax stamp on it and may very well have come from a cigarette box. A side panel of the box assures customers that the product complies with the Food and Drug Act of June 30, 1906. The other says “Cigarettes of Quality.” It’s too bad that Gardner-Lucas didn’t use these little packs to join the earliest ranks of candy card producers!
