Description

An extremely rare Advertising Decorative / Collectors Antique- Ogdens Beano Pigtails Cigar Tin with Bakelite lid.

Ogden opened its first tobacconist shop in 1860 at Park Lane, Liverpool. Due to the busy growing port of Liverpool in Victorian times the company started manufacturing its own tobacco products, opening its first factory in St James’s Street in 1870. St Bruno tobacco was introduced in 1896, St Julien in 1898 this then developed into cigars (Beano Pigtails) and Snuff growing to six factories and a Snuff Mill by the end of the Century.

Pigtail Cigars were designed with a rounded end (cap) with a small tail (the Pigtail) that were used in the absence of a cigar cutter allowing the tail to be pulled to remove the cap before smoking.
