SOLD 1219 Vintage Tampa Postcard Cigar Box Purse



1219 Vintage Tampa Postcard Cigar Box Purse

This is a beautiful Casa Fernandez, Corojo Torpedo cigar box- brown, wooden with dovetailed corners and originating in Nicaragua. I was lucky enough to find it here in Tampa and repurpose and upcycle it into the lovely little cigar box purse that it is now! I decoupaged a vintage Tampa postcard image onto the front and framed the image with 6 blue crystals. The beaded handles boasts blue, black and silver beads with a fat gold and black tassel. Special Tampa fabric, fancy cut and padded, depicting Tampa’s modern skyline and pink flamingos adorns the interior along with black lace trim. I flipped the cigar box purse so that the opening is now on the top and a gold ball lock added for security.  Gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom of the cigar box bag 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. 7 x 9 x 2.25 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. Feel free to call me! 813-655-8003 Humadorables by Susan
