SOLD 1316 MacDill Field Vintage Postcard Cigar Box Purse



1316 MacDill Field Vintage Postcard Cigar Box Purse

This would be the perfect gift for any military wife or service member that has lived here in Tampa! This darling vintage postcard image says, ” Keep’em Flying” and boasts an image of a plane and hanger. Four large red crystals frame the image. MacDill Air Force Base, located in South Tampa, was constructed as MacDill Field, a U.S. Army Air Corps, later U.S. Army Air Forces installation just prior to World War II. With the establishment of the U.S. Air Force as an independent service in September 1947, it became MacDill Air Force Base. MacDill is currently the home of Central Command. This upcycled cigar box purse starts out as a brown, wooden, Fuente, Reserva, Superior Limitada cigar box with dovetail detailing in the corners and the original, gorgeous, red velvet label on the inner lid. The cigar box purse has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top and has been given a secure and oh so cute three ball closure for security. The back has been painted black and the original gold seal remains intact for authenticity sake. 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 black, gold, silver, yellow and red beads and a black tassel. The interior has the original black velvet bottom and black lace trim around the sides. 6 x 11 x 2.25″ 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.
