1586 Marie Antoinette Cigar Box Purse
I fell in love with this image of (who I think) must be the outrageous Marie Antoinette wearing a huge ship hat with French handwriting in the background! I further adorned the image with a fleur de lis, up cycled brooch and four large red crystals- so cute! THIS IS NOT A CUBAN CIGAR BOX! The cigar box is a La Gloria Cubana, Serie r No. 7, brown, wooden slide opening box. I painted the back of the cigar box black and sealed it. Eight gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom for protection and a crystal and antique gold knob closure has been added for security. The gold chain is included and is attached with gold cross body hardware on the sides. It can be used cross body, doubled to wear over the wrist, or removed completely. Some of my clients have some, or many, other chains or straps that can also be used! The inside is fabulously lined in padded and plush red velvet and gold trim! 7.5 x 6 x 4.5″ – nice and deep. Why be the same??? 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: Debuting in 1968 in Miami’s Little Havana district, La Gloria Cubana cigars are more than just a rich, full-bodied indulgence. The bold taste of this premium cigar became a favorite among the local Cuban expats. In 1980, the history of this cigar moved forward, embellishing on the infusion of unique tobaccos to enrich the former, glorified taste. Many enthusiasts turn to this blend, recognizing its superiority and, with its Little Havana roots, it’s one of the most sought-after cigars in the world.
La Gloria Cubana cigars utilize only the finest tobaccos the world has to offer. Comprised of Dominican and Nicaraguan tobaccos, this blend is finished with a seamless Ecuadorian Sumatra or Maduro wrapper and provides your palate with rich notes of oak, earth, and espresso. The cigar lives up to its ‘92′ rating and then some. Even with all the delicious new releases La Gloria Cubana has put out over the years, this blend proves that it’s still the classic.
