1500 White Ostrich and Golden Bee GTO Cigar Box Purse
Not for the shy, compliments guaranteed. Oh these are so popular! I wish I could find these white cigar boxes all the time but it’s just not possible! When I’m busy doing shows, these never make it to my website. At this moment I have two- this one and a bigger one (see pics).I took a white, wooden, GTO cigar box and decoupaged the front with a white ostrich image. A darling golden bee finding has been placed right in the center- so pretty! The front of the upcycled cigar box purse has been given gold corner protectors. The back of the cigar box purse has been painted black and sealed. The cigar box has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top and has been given a gold three ball lock for security. 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 in padded leopard fabric and has the original GTO crown and tobacco leaf logo on the inner lid. The handle is made up of gorgeous gold and silver and pearl beads and a white vegan leather tassel. The original orange seal has be left intact for authenticity sake. 5.75 x 7 x 3.25″ 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.** Please note, this box has a small tear on the inner label in the upper right corner where the Surgeon General’s warning was removed. 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: GTO Dominican Cigars are manufactured at Tabacalera GTO Dominicana located in the Caribbean island of Dominican Republic. The Dominican has become the ultimate paradise for cigar aficionados. Since the the Spanish arrived in 1492, tobacco has been a driving our history and culture. The Taino, the first inhabitants of the island, were using tobacco on the island in their social, religious and ceremonial activities centuries before the Europeans arrived. Today, Dominican cigars are exported to the United States and compete on the same level as Cuban cigars in the European market. The epi-center for the manufacturing of premium cigars in the Dominican Republic is located in the Valle del Cibao. GTO cigars are made from the finest, aged first-generation Cuban seed tobacco and each GTO Cigar is meticulously crafted by some of the most experienced torcedors (rollers) in the Dominican Republic. The family farm, located in Santiago, in the heart of the Valle del Cibao. The Valle del Cibao is nestled between two mountain ranges to the north and south, which provide protection to the tobacco crops from Caribbean hurricanes and storms. The Dominican Republic’s most fertile and deepest topsoil is located here. This is not only the prime tobacco growing region of the Dominican Republic but, unquestionably, one of the finest tobacco growing regions in the world. According to Cigar Aficionado Magazine – the “Valle del Cibao is to the Dominican Republic what the Vuelta Abajo is to Cuba.” Many of the finest cigar manufacturers in the world are located in this region.
