"Spirit of St. Louis" Cigar Box Label

Extent:
0.05 Cubic feet (1 folder)
Type:
Collection descriptions
Archival materials
Cigar labels
Chromolithographs
Date:
circa 1927
Summary:
This single-item collection consists of an unused Mazer-Cressman cigar box color label (6.5 x 7.75 inches) commemorating Charles A. Lindbergh's solo transatlantic flight in the Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis (r/n N-X-211) on May 20-21, 1927.
Scope and Contents:
This single-item collection consists of an unused 5-cent cigar box label (6.5 x 7.75 inches) issued by the Mazer-Cressman Cigar Co. Inc. (Detroit, Michigan) in honor of Charles A. Lindbergh's solo transatlantic flight in the Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis (r/n N-X-211) on May 20-21, 1927. The chromolithograph print, produced for Mazer-Cressman by the American Lithographic Co. (New York), features a right side view of the Spirit of St. Louis in flight over the title in a half-circle, with stylized illustrations of the cities of St. Louis and New York (USA) at left and Paris (France) at right.
Arrangement:
Single-item collection.
Biographical / Historical:
On May 20-21, 1927, Charles Lindbergh literally flew into history when he crossed the Atlantic Ocean in his Ryan NYP Spirit of St. Louis, thus becoming the first pilot to fly solo and nonstop from New York to Paris. This flight made Lindbergh a household name and catapulted him into fame and celebrity. Objects of popular culture such as this cigar box label reflect the public adulation for Lindbergh and the powerful commercial response to his celebrity. The Mazer-Cressman Cigar Company Inc. of Detroit, Michigan (once a major United States cigar-making center) filed a trademark for this design with the US Patent Office in July 1927.

Biographical/Historical note:
Raymond Orteig (1870-1939) was a Frenchman who owned the Brevoort and Lafayette hotels in New York City. Enthralled by Alcock and Brown's transatlantic flight in 1919, Orteig put up a purse of $25,000 to the first aviator to fly nonstop from Paris to New York or New York to Paris. Orteig made his offer good for five years, but five years came and went without anyone accomplishing the feat. In 1926, Orteig extended the term of his offer for another five years. In 1927, Charles Lindbergh won the prize with his New York to Paris flight.
