1408 Epoca White Cigar Box Clutch / Cross Body
This is just one of those gorgeous cigar box purses that has to be left as is. I added gold corner protectors to this white, wooden Epoca cigar box. The original, authentic cigar label is stunning- a red stripe, gold coins and flowers. Eight gold purse feet have been added for protection and a crystal knob closure has been added for security. Gold hardware has been attached to the sides to hold the chain that comes with the clutch so that it can be cross bodied. The chain can be wrapped through twice to make it shorter and worn over the wrist as well. The gold tone chain is approximately 49″ long. Of course, the chain can be removed to use this as a clutch as well- beautiful and versatile! The inside boasts another stunning label on the inner lid of a Cuban princess being pampered by what look like servants in a fancy canoe! I lined it with plush and padded red velvet and black lace. The Surgeon General’s warning has been left authentically intact on the top of the cigar box. 7 x 9.75 x 2.5″ 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.

History: Epoca was the first cigar brand owned by Nat Sherman in 1929. An extremely important part of the company’s story and history, the ‘Clear Havana’ blend was their entry into the cigar industry. Today, Epoca Cigars are a blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican grown Cuban seed tobaccos, finished with a beautiful Ecuadorian wrapper. The cigars are packed in replicated boxes from the original art from 1929.
