1473 Tampa Girl Gonzalez Cigar Box Purse
I’ve done these Tampa Girl cigar box purses many times and in many ways and they are always a big hit with my Tampa Girls! So many people have family roots in the cigar industry here that it’s a sentimental thing. These are not original Tampa Girl cigar boxes. I take a wooden cigar box and decoupage the vintage labels onto it. The originals are very hard to find in good condition. This one is a Gonzalez, Fisher y Ca. label. I do have another on my site that is a vintage Antonio label. They were both made here in Tampa. They both depict a young Cuban girl on the docks of Havana. Morro Castle is in the background. The box happens to be a My Father, Jaime Garcia, Reserva Especial cigar box with dovetail detailing in the corners and the original, beautiful seal left intact for authenticity sake. It’s nice and deep too- 6.75 x 8 x 3.75″. I framed the vintage image with four large red crystals and for smaller red crystals are on the top of the upcycled cigar box purse. I painted the back black. The 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 leopard velvet and red trim. The beaded handle is made up of red, black, and gold beads and a black leather tassel. 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.
