1556 Sushi To Go Cigar Box Purse
Be ready for compliments when you carry this darling little Humadorable. I added two sushi rolls, an open and spilled Panda soy sauce packet and wooden chopsticks to the front of this cigar box purse- so cute! Four large red crystals frame the corners. The box itself, is a white, wooden, slide opening La Gloria Cubana with dovetail detailing in the corners. ** This is NOT a Cuban cigar box, but made and produced in the Dominican Republic. See history below. The handle is made up of beautiful gold and red beads and a black tassel. I lovingly lined the inside with padded and plush red velvet. The cigar box has been flipped so that the opening is now on the top and has been given a porcelain knob closure for security. I painted the back black and sealed it. 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. 4 x 8.5 x 4.25″ – nice and deep. ** 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: Wikipedia La Gloria Cubana is the name of two premium cigar brands, one produced on the island of Cuba for Habanos SA, the Cuban state-owned tobacco company, and other produced in the Dominican Republic by El Credito Cigar Company for General Cigar Company, now a subsidiary of Swedish Match. La Gloria Cubana was sold to General Cigar Company by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo in 1999 for an undisclosed sales price.
The La Gloria Cubana brand was created in 1885 by the Sociedad Cabañas y Castro, then bought twenty years later in 1905 by José F. Rocha, who manufactured the brand from his factory at 364 Miguel Street in Havana. After Rocha’s death in 1954, the Cifuentes family bought both La Gloria Cubana and Bolivar from Rocha’s former company. Production was moved to the Partagás Factory, where it’s still produced today, and became very popular as an export brand.
After the Revolution, it seems that production of La Gloria Cubana ceased for several years, until around 1965 when the brand was apparently resurrected at the Partagás Factory. It is produced in smaller quantities than other brands and maintains its popularity with connoisseurs, the Médaille d’Or No. 2 being a particularly prized vitola.
La Gloria Cubana also produces two machine-made cigarillos: the Mini and the Purito.
