1468 Oyster Cigar Box Purse Series 2 When in Doubt, Wear Pearls
This is the second of my series of lovely oyster cigar box purses. I’ve become quite infatuated with oysters lately! I have been gilding oyster shells for a few years now, and find them to be so beautiful. When we order them in a restaurant and I ask to take the shells to go, they look at me like I’m crazy! So, I decided to put some of these magnificent images on my cigar box purses. This image is centered on the front of a vintage brown, wooden cigar box. The oyster cup has gorgeous blue and purple shading. The edges have been torn and aged and a “pearl” rests in the center of the oyster cup- so pretty!!! Large “pearls” also frame the corners of this up cycled cigar box purse. I painted the back black and gave it a protective coating. The cigar box purse has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top and has been given a secure and oh so cute three ball closure for security. Eight gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom of the cigar box bag 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 handle is made up of blue, gold, purple and pearl beads and a big blue, silk, tassel that looks a bit like an artichoke. The interior has been lined in padded black velvet and blue ball trim. 6.5 x 9.25 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.

I know this box is vintage, probably from the 1960s, but I could not find any information on this brand.
