SOLD 1073 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse



#1073 $65 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse

Whether you are from Tampa or not, this vintage postcard Tampa Bay Hotel (now University of Tampa) cigar box purse  is hard to resist! The image shows the historic hotel in all it’s glory, on the Hillsborough River, flanked by alligators! 4 black crystals adorn the corners of the image.This upcycled cigar box purse starts out as a Fuente Canones cigar box, found here in Tampa. It’s a sturdy and deep, blonde, wooden cigar box with dovetail detailing in the corners. I left the original gold seal intact for authenticity sake and because it, in itself, is beautiful! The Fuente family live here in Tampa. A heavy gold lock closure replaces the original closure for extra security and the bottom of the purse has been painted black. I added gold feet to protect the bottom and 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 interior has been lovingly lined with padded leopard fabric and black trim.  The original Fuente label is on the inner lid.The handle is made up of gorgeous gold and black, green and copper beads and a fat gold tassel. 4.75 x 9 x 4.25″ THIS IS 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.
