1456 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse

This beautiful Vintage postcard image of the old Tampa Bay Hotel has been decoupaged onto the front of a My Father, Jaime Garcia, Reserva Especial, brown, wooden cigar box with dovetail detailing in the corners. Six large black crystals frame the image. The Tampa Bay Hotel was built by Flaggler and has a steep Tampa history. It is now Plant Hall, a part of the University of Tampa.

I painted the back black. The original and beautiful seal remains intact. The up cycled purse has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top  and has been given a gold three ball lock for security. 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 with plush, padded red velvet and black trim. The original Jaime Garcia logo is burnished into the inner lid. The beaded handle is made up of red, black, gold, crystal and silver beads and a black leather tassel.  7 x 9.5 x 2.5″ 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.
