Background

In 1933 the Sultan Zigarettenfabrik Aurelia in Dresden (Germany) issued an album with the arms of German guilds and trade unions. The subtitle was "Die Adelszeichen deutscher Arbeit" (the honorable signs of German labour).

The album was beautifully decorated with backgrounds and texts. The back of the cards provided some information on the company as well as the arms of the guild displayed.

The images could be collected using collectors-lists, an example is shown below (image from eBay):
