1374 Vintage Miami Beach Map Cigar Box Purse
I’ve done these maps before of the Tampa area beaches but this is my first for Miami. I just love these fun and playful circa 1960s maps! Fish, a boat, and an airplane are part of the scene! I guarantee compliments! Four large blue crystals frame the image. This one starts out as a Fuente Reserva Especial, brown, wooden cigar box with dovetail detailing in the corners. I painted the back black and added eight gold purse feet to the back and bottom for protection. 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. 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 gold, turquoise and blue beads and a fat blue silk tassel that’s shaped like an artichoke! The interior has the original, gorgeous, red velvet Fuente label on the inner lid and the original black velvet bottom. I lined the sides in black velvet. 6.75 x 7 x 3″ THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! ** This cigar box has a slight gap in the opening- please see pictures. The Fuente boxes are coveted so I use them even with the slight flaws! 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: The Fuente Family reside here in Tampa. In 2012, the Fuente companies celebrated 100 years of hard work, dedication and family tradition. When the Fuente companies was established in 1912, Arturo Fuente would have never dreamed his passion for cigars would become a global benchmark for the cigar industry. He started his company with humble beginnings, rolling and blending cigars in the back of his house with his wife Cristina and two sons, Carlos and Arturo Oscar. Four generations later, the company is still family-owned and operated in the Dominican Republic.
