SOLD 1003 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse



#1003 $89.99 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse

This is a beautiful, colored, vintage image of the old Tampa Bay Hotel and beautiful minarets. The building is now home to the University of Tampa and the Henry B. Plant Museum- one of Tampa’s treasures! This is a Hemingway Reserve Especial cigar box – blonde and wooden with dovetail detailing, made by the Fuente Family, who also live here in Tampa. The image has been decoupaged onto the front of the box and four clear crystals have been added to the front of this darling cigar box purse. The back has been painted black, sealed, and gold purse feet added for protection.The box itself was flipped so that the opening is now on the side and given a heavy gold lock closure for security.  Gold hardware has been attached to the sides so that you may add a strap that you already own. This makes these little cigar box purses of mine versatile in that they can be worn by the handle, over the shoulder or cross- body. I sell straps and gold and silver cross body chains too. The chain in the last photo is available, but not included. The handle is made of black, gold, and silver beads and a black tassel. The inside of the purse has the original black velvet bottom and I lined the sides with padded black velvet fabric to match. The inner lid has the original red velvet Fuente label- stunning! 6.75 x 7 x 3 THIS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! Large flaws will be noted in the description. If you don’t like what you see, I can do custom cigar box purses and can include anything you like!- pictures of family members, pets, places- you name it! I always ship insured. Feel free to call me! 813-655-8003 Humadorables by Susan
