Please Help with Info Unusual Americana? Paperweight
« on: September 28, 2008, 12:15:54 AM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm hoping for any information on this unusual paperweight. I'm guessing it's American. I've never seen anything like it before. It has a shield in the middle of it with 14 stars and stripes (13 or 11). The top has an eagle but the bottom has a lion that looks English??? The words royal crest are on either side of the shield. At top is the word imperial or imperiale, the bottom has the letters, A on one side and Flo on the other. This looks old to me and I'm really curious to learn more about it. Any help is greatly appreciated.







Thanks everyone,

Bluejade

The eagle might be German, perhaps Royal Crest is a brand name?

Hi Frank,

Thank you very much. I think you might be right. I'm guessing the letters flor and a might stand for flora fina? I know nothing about cigars??? I was searching for old crests and countries.   :huh:

Thank you again for your help,
Bluejade
