SOLD 1223 Tampa Bay Hotel Vintage Postcard Cigar Box Purse



1223 Tampa Bay Hotel Vintage Postcard Cigar Box Purse

There is so much history in this beautiful Tampa landmark! The former Tampa Bay Hotel is now part of the University of Tampa and the iconic minarets can be seen from all over downtown. It sits on property along the Hillsborough River- a true masterpiece! This cigar box purse is sure to be a favorite among Tampanians and UT grads alike as well as the many tourists from all over the world who flock here every year to see this historic building. I decoupaged the image onto the front of the brown, wooden, GTO cigar box and framed it with four black crystals. The orange and black seal has been left authentically intact. I painted the back black and flipped the cigar box purse so that the opening is now on the top. A gold 3 ball lock has been 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.  The handle is made up of gorgeous black, red, gold and bronze beads and a black tassel. The interior has been lined with padded black velvet and has the original GTO logo on the inner lid.  This cigar box was found here in Tampa and originates in the Dominican Republic. 6.5 x 7 x 2.75″. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! They add character and charm! 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
