SOLD 1409 Sailing Away Cigar Box Purse



1409 Sailing Away Cigar Box Purse

This beautiful, nautical,  sailboat regatta image was taken from a vintage silk scarf- so beautiful and fresh! I can almost feel the sun and salt air on my face! I framed the image by adding four large crystals in the corners and added gold corner protectors. The original red and yellow colors of the Avo Uvezian cigar box seem to compliment the sailboat image as well! ( I planned it that way!) I flipped the cigar box so that the opening is now on the top and added a gold three ball lock for security. The back of the cigar box bag has been painted black. Eight gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom 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 original seal and Surgeon General’s warning have been left intact for authenticity sake.The inside has the original Avo label on the inner lid and I lined it with padded, yellow, modern patterned  fabric and black  lace trim. The handle is made up of yellow, red, blue, blue striped, black and silver beads and a black tassel. 6.75 x 10 x 2.25″ THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED!  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: During his playing days in Puerto Rico, cigar icon and jazz musician Avo Uvezian said that he would purchase a few local cigars each night and place them on top of the piano for anyone who wanted to smoke. Eventually, these cigars became a hit with his fans, and in 1987, Uvezian met Davidoff’s Hendrik “Henke” Kelner. The pair worked to create a special cigar for the musician, which was released the following year, with many offshoot lines following the success of the original. These cigars are hand rolled and made in the Dominican Republic.
