1423 Tempus Cigar Box Clutch / Cross Body Purse
Sometimes less really is more and this Tempus cigar box clutch is one of those instances! This is a beautiful, light brown, wooden cigar box with a gorgeous seal made by Alec Bradley. I pretty much left the outside of the cigar box as is front and back except for adding the gold hardware. I flipped the box so that the opening is now on the top and added a three ball lock for security. Eight gold purse feet protect the back and bottom of the clutch. Gold cross body hardware has been attached to the sides so that you can add the chunky gold chain that comes with this adorable Humadorable if you choose to be hands free. I lined the interior with padded and plush red velvet- just so handsome! 6.75 x 10 x 2.5″ 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: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.
