1414 Gasparilla Vintage Label Cigar Box Purse
This oh so cute vintage Gasparilla Lee Co. of Tampa fruit label depicts a pirate with his treasure chest of loot sitting on a beach watching a beautiful flamenco dancer with a ship in the background. Four large red crystals frame the image. If you don’t know, Gasparilla is a huge deal here in Tampa. Pirates come in off the bay in flotillas and invade the city and the parades go on and on! It’s a lot of fun! I’ve used this image many times but no two of my Humadorable cigar box purses are exactly the same! This cigar box purse starts out as a brown, wooden, Alec Bradley, Post Embargo cigar box with a gorgeous patriotic label inside. I flipped the wooden cigar box so that the opening is now on the top and gave it a gold ball lock closure 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 interior has been lined in padded and plush red velvet with black lace trim and has the beautiful Post Embargo label on the inner lid. The handle is made up of gorgeous black, gold, red, silver and skull with crystal eyed beads and a black tassel. 6.25 x 6.75 x 2.25″ -small but perfect for a night on the town! 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:Alec Bradley is the name of a popular brand of handmade cigars established in 1996 by Alan Rubin, the son of an importer of hardware supplies. Rubin launched his brand, named after his children, at the tail end of the cigar boom of the 1990s and entered a clogged market. After failed initial schemes at producing cigars targeted to golf courses and flavored after-dinner cigars, Rubin managed to carve out a tenuous niche selling budget-priced cigars to tobacconists. In 2007 the company managed to break through to a broader market with the introduction of its full-flavored “Tempus” line. As of 2011 the company was selling between two and three million cigars annually to consumers around the world.
