1581 Lover’s Eye Cigar Box Purse
I have become totally infatuated with the lover’s eyes!! In the 1700s, lovers would have their eyes painted and leave them with their significant others in the form of jewelry when they had to be away . This blue lover’s eye is encapsulated in a blue sacred heart and I surrounded it with16 half pearls- so lovely!!! The box itself is a brown, wooden, Perla del Mar, Toro and has been given gold corner protectors. 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. The back of the up cycled cigar box purse has been painted black and sealed. 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 handle is made up of lovely blue and gold beads and a gold tassel. I lined the inside with padded blue velvet and gold trim. 7.5 x 7 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.

History: Perla del Mar is a historic cigar brand that traces its roots to Cuba. In 1905, four Cuban brothers started hand rolling cigars using tobacco grown on their family’s farm in Cuba. They named their company Perfecto Garcia Brothers and called their cigars “Perla del Mar” because of the beautiful Caribbean waters that surround Cuba. As the popularity and demand for their cigars grew, the brothers built a large cigar factory next to J.C. Newman’s El Reloj factory in Ybor City, Florida. Perla del Mar was one of the leading premium cigar brands in the early 1900s. J.C. Newman’s new Perla del Mar cigars honor the brand’s historic legacy. Pearla del Mar translates to “Pearl of the Sea”.
