General Note: Clear Havana brands were most popular in Europe, and therefore, the most susceptible to thievery. The famous Flor de Sanchez y Haya label, first printed in 1878, portrayed a popular New York actress, Fannie Davenport. It remained the firm's leading clear Havana brand after the company moved from New York to Tampa. In early 1920 there suddenly appeared a questionable label on the European cigar market. It had pirated a popular American cigar label name, La Belle Creole, and used the same Fannie portrait popularized by Sanchez Y Haya.
