Poster Stamp - Abadie Papiergesellschaft A.G.
This poster stamp was issued by the Austrian branch of French cigarette rolling paper company Abadie, probably in the 1930s, and is part of a series of stamps depicting poets. The Viennese factory, Abadie Papiergesellschaft A.G., opened in 1909 and produced rolling papers, posters, books, and other lithographed items. The stamp features a left-facing portrait of Dante within a frame and has text as follows: at the top: “ABADIE”; at the bottom: “SERIE DICHTER / · DANTE ·” (poets series). The Abadie coat of arms appears in both bottom corners.
