1415 Afternoon at the Yacht Club Anchor Brooch Cigar Box Purse
This cigar box purse is everything! Where do I even start?? I took a white Leccia cigar box, decoupaged an image from a vintage, expensive (starts with a silent H) scarf to the front. The image has black and white nautical stripes with a very ornate crown, anchor and rope design- gorgeous! Then, I added a gold and rhinestone anchor brooch to the center of that along with eight clear crystals. Four gold corner protectors have also been added to the front corners. Ahhhh… I painted the back white and added eight gold purse feet to the back and bottom for protection. I flipped the cigar box so that the opening is now on the top and gave it a three ball lock 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 inside has been lined in padded and plush black velvet and gold trim. The Leccia “L” logo remains on the inner lid for authenticity sake. The handle is made from lovely black, gold and silver beads and boasts a black vegan leather tassel. 7 x 7.75 x 3.5″ 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: leaves and it sparked Leccia’s desire to craft cigars.
When Leccia returned, he went home and began experimenting with different cigars in his garage. Leccia did not have access to loose leaves so he would cut open different cigars to mix and match their tobaccos, creating what he called Frankenstein cigars.
Leccia decided to pursue his hobby as a career. He quit his lucrative job in the liquor industry to join the sales team at Oliva Cigar Company. It was here that Leccia made his first mark on the cigar industry. Leccia is the mastermind behind the unusually stubby Nub and Cain series.
Leccia’s creativity was groundbreaking for the cigar industry. The lines of cigars he created are shorter yet a last about the same as a typical Churchill. The focus of these cigars is to capture the best part of a cigar and prolong it, needless to say, Leccia delivered.
In 2010, Leccia parted ways with Oliva Cigar Co. and it led to a disheartening court battle. Leccia’s contract held a clause that prevented him from competing with his former employer. There was even a lost cigar brand, known as Debut, which was never allowed to be released in the mist of it all.
Three years later, Leccia was finally allowed to return to the cigar industry. He released the iconic Black and White lines and was once again ahead of the pack with imaginative and unique blends.
The Black and White lines both feature tobaccos from 5 different countries. The Black includes Nicaraguan, Dominican, Brazilian Mata Fina, and rare American fire-cured tobacco in an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. The White includes Nicaraguan, Dominican, and American Pennsylvania Seco tobacco bound by an Ecuadoran Habano wrapper and is finished with an African Sun Grown wrapper.
Leccia’s return was in part successful due to the Toraño family. Charlie Toraño, of the Toraño Family Cigar Company, is a huge supporter of Leccia. When Leccia left Oliva Cigar Co., Charlie was the first person he turned to for help in returning to the business.
Toraño Family Cigar Co. handled the distribution of Leccia’s cigars so he could focus on creating blends and meeting the aficionados who enjoy his cigars. In 2014, Toraño was acquired by General Cigar Company and they took over the distribution of Leccia cigars as well. Leccia landed a position at General Cigar Co. working on the Foundry brand but left in 2016 to focus on his own brands.
