SOLD 1245 Rose and Poppy Keepsake “Book” Cigar Box



1245 Rose and Poppy Keepsake “Book” Cigar Box

This is a very unusual cigar box to begin with as it was made to look like a book. The brown, wooden box has the top, bottom and sides carved out to resemble book pages and it has a brown leather spine that reads, “Romeo y Julieta, Don Juan, Byron, 20 Cigars”. It’s a Romeo y Julieta cigar box and the original label of the iconic balcony scene adorns the inner lid. There is a hidden magnet that keeps it closed. I lined the inside with plush, padded black velvet. The front of the box has been painted black and the most beautiful images of roses and poppies have been decoupaged onto it. The original stickers have been left on the back of the box if for nothing else just to prove that is is indeed a cigar box! This does not really fall into the purse category but is definitely feminine. This would look lovely laying flat on a dresser or side table or standing up with other books on a shelf to use as a secret cache for money or jewelry. There are so many things you could use this lovely cigar box for! 9 x 6.5 x 2.5″ This cigar box was found in Durham, NC and originates in the Dominican Republic. THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! They only 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.
