1520 Rhinestone Skull and Purple Crystal Cigar Box Purse, Wow! Gasparilla
Well… where to start with this adorable Humadorable cigar box purse???? I suppose the pictures do all the talking, but let me just say that this is a black, vegan leather, J.C. Newman, Diamond Crown, Julius Caeser cigar box and that the interior comes with the original purple suede! Yes- purple suede!- along with the inner label depicting the founder, J.C. , as in Julius Caesar, which was his actual name, but there was a typo (see history below). I left the label because it’s authentic to the box but you can peel it off if you want- even though I hope you don’t! Ok, so all that being said… I adorned the front of the cigar box purse with a rhinestone skull with purple crystal eyes, silver and rhinestone wings, four large purple crystals and some black sparkly scroll design at the bottom- lots of bling!! This would be a perfect Gasparilla accessory here in Tampa or for skull and pirate lovers anywhere! I did not add my usual feet to the back and bottom because the interior is authentic and also because the vegan leather can be easily wiped clean with a damp cloth. I did not add my usual lock closure as this cigar box came with a flap, snap secure closure.The back is also authentically original with gold lettering. 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 gold, black, purple and silver beads and a black tassel. 6.25 x 7.25 x 2″ 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: History: Born in 1875 in a small Hungarian village, Julius Newman and his family sailed across the Atlantic in 1888 in search of the American Dream. With no middle name, Julius was required to choose one before workers could complete his entry paperwork. Stumped, he solicited help from the immigration officer who suggested Caesar, after the great Roman. Julius relished in the thought of being named after a historic leader and conqueror but due to a typo by the attendant – Caeser was spelled with an “e”. Thus Julius Caeser (J.C.) Newman, American citizen, was born. Unlike his brothers who became tailors, J.C. had a yearning to make cigars. So, his mother paid an experienced cigar maker $3.00 a month to teach her young son the art of hand cigar rolling. Little did J.C. know that day in May 1895, when he started his company and hand-rolled his first 500 cigars for the family grocer, that he was establishing a family legacy that would be flourishing four generations later. In fact, of the 42,000 cigar manufacturers licensed in 1895, J.C. Newman Cigar Company is the only premium cigar maker that is still owned and operated by the founding family. In 2010, to celebrate J.C.’s 135th birthday and our company’s 115th anniversary, Diamond Crown Julius Caeser was released. Diamond Crown Julius Caeser cigars are meticulously rolled by hand in small batches by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic. As with all Diamond Crown cigars, Julius Caeser is held to the highest standard of quality control. The Newmans reside here, in Tampa. The J. C. Newman Cigar Factory is one of the oldest in town and has just been given a multi million dollar renovation.
