1398 Vintage Florida Map Cigar Box Purse
This darling vintage image of a pink Florida map surrounded by oranges, pineapple and hibiscus and a yellow border has been lovingly decoupaged onto the front of this H. Upman cigar box. It’s a gorgeous, brown, wooden, 115th Anniversary, Connecticut, heavily hinged cigar box with a beautiful, yellow seal and interior yellow sides that have been left authentically intact. Six large crystals frame the vintage map image- so pretty! The inner sides are originally yellow and the bottom has been lined with padded pink velvet. 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 gold, pink, silver, blue beads and a pink tassel. . 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.
