Henry Clay and Bock Film Stars - Borderless

Issuing Company: Henry Clay and Bock Co., Havana, Cuba
Country of Issue: Cuba
Year of Issue: 1920s
Color/B&W: B&W
Number of Cards in Set:
Card Size: 1 7/8" x 2 9/16"
Issued as insert with what product: Cigars

Notes: Checklist Incomplete. Issued with Susini and Bock Ovalados Cigars. Henry Clay and Bock issued several different film card sets with very similar characteristics. They used the same back design on multiple sets, making identification a bit tricky. This set shows film stars on the fronts with their name and studio at the bottom of the card in a borderless design. Note that some stars do not have a studio listed on the front beneath their name. The backs show just the card number above a general ad for Susini and Bock Ovalados Cigars.

Card #339 Ethel Clayton shows her name and studio beneath the number on the card back. This may indicate that the higher number cards were issued in a later series from the lower numbers with a slightly different design.

Thanks to Richard Minns for help with this checklist.
