1450 Disfrute en Cuba Cigar Box Purse
Let me begin by saying that this is not a Cuban cigar box. It is actually a Fuente, Hemingway, Reserve Especial, blonde wooden cigar box with dovetail details in the corners made in the Dominican Republic. The vintage travel poster image has been decoupaged onto the front of the up cycled cigar box purse. The translation is, “Enjoyment in Cuba”. The beautiful senorita is smoking a cigar and drinking a cafe con leche with poppies in her hair. Famous Havana landmarks are in the foreground including Morro Castle and the Cathedral of Havana- I love it! Four large black crystals frame the vintage image. The back of the cigar box purse has been painted black. Gold purse feet protect the back and bottom of the purse. The cigar box bag has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top and has been given a gold three ball lock 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 boasts the original Fuente red velvet label and black velvet bottom. I lined the sides with black, rose lace trim. The handle is made up of gold, red, silver and black beads and a dark red vegan leather tassel with a double pom pom! 7.75 x 7 x 3″ 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: The Fuente Family reside here in Tampa. In 2012, the Fuente companies celebrated 100 years of hard work, dedication and family tradition. When the Fuente companies was established in 1912, Arturo Fuente would have never dreamed his passion for cigars would become a global benchmark for the cigar industry. He started his company with humble beginnings, rolling and blending cigars in the back of his house with his wife Cristina and two sons, Carlos and Arturo Oscar. Four generations later, the company is still family-owned and operated in the Dominican Republic.
