The ones for "Alzhir" and "Bliuming" are terrific! Love the early modernist motif.
Some added history notes: a darkly humorous aspect to these cigarette labels is a few indicate they were produced/issued by the FOOD industry "pishchevoi promyshlennosti". One of them also indicates it was distributed by "Narkomsnab", Narodnyi komissariat snabzheniia, (the People's Commissariat for Supplies). That puts a date of 1930 on those labels as Narkomsnab was developed in the year, '30. Narkonsnab sent these packs to cooperative stores for sale to the Soviet people. Nice collection, Dimas!
