1177 Vintage Cuba Travel Poster Cigar Box Purse

Where do I start with this darling yellow cigar box purse?? This vintage poster image has been decoupaged onto the front of a yellow Particulares cigar box that has red and gold trim. The poster depicts an elegant couple observing a Cuban street dance party and the words, “So Near So Fast” beckon the potential traveler. There is a little inset map of Cuba on the bottom. It’s just so happy, bright and colorful- a true show stopper! The back has been left authentically as is- yellow! I flipped this cigar box purse to fit the image so the opening is now on the side and a clear acrylic and antique gold knob serves as the closure for security. Gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom for protection. 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. Padded zebra fabric lines the inside of the purse along with yellow ball trim- so fun!  The original Particurlares label has been left as is and adorns the inner lid. I’m not sure what it is, but it resembles L’Arc de Triumph. The handle is made up of black, yellow, silver, blue beads along with a fat blue and gold tassel. 9.25 x 6.5 x 2.25″ This cigar box was found here in Tampa and originates in Nicaragua. What a great gift for anyone going to Cuba, going to a Havana Nights party, or a travel agent! 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.
