Jack and Charlie’s 21 Club ELDorado 5-6500 Matchbook Sticker (MB73)
This place, owned by cousins Jack and Charlie was first called Red Head, and was a speakeasy in Greenwich Village. Then the club scampered around New York City under multiple names and in many spots before permanently settling on West 52nd Street. During prohibition the club adopted an elaborate scheme to Avoid trouble during the multiple times it was raided by police. The whole bar had a system of levers that could be manipulated to tip and send all the liquor bottles directly into New York City sewers. One of the sexiest bits of the club’s history is that during Christmas some of the elite clientele would receive specially designed signature silk scarves with the club logo way before it was customary to give away swag. It’s also pretty damn cool that hidden in the ginormous basement cellars of 21 were the personal wine collections of everyone from Sophia Loren, Earnest Hemmingway, and Elizabeth Taylor to Marilyn Monroe and Gloria Vanderbilt. Bad ass!
This is easily one of the top 3 matchcovers in our collection. We literally cannot keep up with the orders for this one. My father’s lifelong best friend, Johnny Moore, has a beautiful wife who looked a lot like a Hollywood starlette in her young lady days. When we first produced this cover she snatched it up and began to reminisce about her nightclubbing weekends in Manhattan. SUCH a sexy cover.
The image you see is exactly what we use to produce your bespoke sticker. All stickers are custom made. (We include 1 free GypsyFaith sticker per order.)
All GypsyFaith die-cut vinyl stickers are printed on glossy, premium, extra thick vinyl. We then seal the image in clear laminate so that it will be particularly resistant to fading or tearing. We will only sell the absolute top end of any particular product on our site. Our intention, as we developed this product, was to make it as durable and valuable as our magnet products.
Images used to make our stickers are scanned at 9600dpi resolution, reduced to 960dpi for production.
SIZE: This sticker is exactly 1.835 x 2.362 inches OR 4.66 x 5.999 cm (It is about the size of the original matchcover.)
It ships in a photo-type mailer to prevent bending.
