1369 Vintage Tampa Bay Beaches Map Cigar Box Purse
I’ve used this image quite a few times now in different ways on different cigar box purses and it’s always a hit! No two are ever the same. The circa 1960s image shows beaches and inland from Clearwater to Ruskin along with children playing, fish, and water skier- so cute! I framed the image with four large blue crystals. The colorful blue seal has been left authentically intact on this brown, wooden, H. Upman, A. J. Fernandez, Churchill, heavily hinged, cigar box. The inner sides are originally blue and have also been left as is and the bottom has been lined with padded zebra fabric. The original H. Upman logo remains on the inner lid. I painted the back black and gave it a protective coating. 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. Eight 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, and blue beads and a fat blue tassel. 8.25 x 9.25 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. Feel free to call me! 813-655-8003

History: Way back in 1844, two brothers, August and Hermann Upmann started the H. Upmann cigar brand in Havana. They are also acknowledged as the inventors of the cedar box as a means to store cigars. Today this company holds the honor of being one the oldest cigar brands still produced today. The company’s longevity is a testimony to their commitment to excellence. This fundamental belief has rewarded them with a long history of producing many of the top-selling blends from the Dominican Republic.
