SOLD 1281 Gasparilla Vintage Label Cigar Box



1281 Gasparilla Vintage Label Cigar Box

This darling little copy of a vintage Lee Co. fruit label has graced my cigar box purses many times but no two are exactly the same! It’s very popular and depicts a pirate with his treasure chest, a lovely flamenco dancer, and a ship in the background all on a lovely sandy beach- presumably in the Tampa Bay area. Perfect for Gasparilla, here in Tampa, or a night out anywhere, any time! Four light blue crystals adorn the corners. The cigar box itself is a My Father, Don Pepin Garcia- brown, wooden, dovetail detail in the corners, with a beautiful original and authentic seal on top and label on the inner lid. “1950” has been engraved onto the top and sides of the wood. I painted the back black. The cigar box purse has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top and has been given a gold three ball lock closure 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 silver, blue and orange beads and a black tassel. The inside has been lovingly lined with padded zebra fabric and orange ball trim. This cigar box originates in Nicaragua and was found here in Tampa. I promise compliments! 7 x 6.5 x 3″ 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. Feel free to call me! 813-655-8003
