Flowers On Cigarette Cards

Many flowers have evolved a way to harness the mobility of insects and birds to aid them with pollination. They compete for the attention of insects and birds with their hypnotic colours and patterns. This ruthless free market also existed between the tobacco manufacturers. They issued sets of cigarette cards on topics that would appeal to their potential customers and keep them coming back for more. Flowers are not just irresistible to insects and birds, they are also adored by humans. Many floral cigarette card sets were issued from the 1870s-1930s.

  It would be impractical to list every flower card set issued and so I've listed small selection of some of the more unusual and rare card sets that I've come across in my six years of dealing on eBay. I've provided scans of a sample card from each set and tried to include all card titles.
