"Should A Gentleman Offer a Tiparillo to a Violinist?" - 1960's Magazine Ad
Risqué late-1960's magazine ad for Tiparillo cigars, showing a scantily-clad violinist with the text: "Should a gentleman offer a Tiparillo to a violinist? After a tough evening with the Beethoven crowd, she loves to relax and listen to her folk-rock records. Preferably, on your stereo. She's open-minded. So maybe tonight you offer her a Tiparillo [...] After all, if she likes the offer, she might start to play. No strings attached." Clipped from a magazine; in very fine condition. 7.25 x 10 inches (18.5 x 25.6 cm).
The ad was part of a series: each ad suggested offering Tiparillos to a different professional woman (a lab technician, a librarian, a census taker, a dental hygenist, etc.) in a cleavage-revealing outfit, each filled with bad puns and heavy innuendo.
