1588 Golden Bee and Roses Cigar Box Purse
This beautiful pale mauve image of a crown, roses and an bee has been decoupaged onto the front of this gorgeous cigar box purse and a golden bee finding placed in the center- so pretty! The Havoc cigar box, by H. Upmann, has gold coin images in the front and the inner lid. I added gold corner protectors and four half pearls to frame the image ** Please note that the beaded handles and tassels will vary. **The tassel will be a beautiful, substantial, pale mauve pink, not gold. See last picture! The inside of the up cycled cigar box purse has been lined with padded black velvet and gold trim trim. 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. 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. 7 x 9.5 x 2.5″ ** 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: Way back in 1844, two brothers, August and Hermann Upmann started the H. Upmann cigar brand in Havana. They are also acknowledged as the inventors of the cedar box as a means to store cigars. Today this company holds the honor of being one the oldest cigar brands still produced today. The company’s longevity is a testimony to their commitment to excellence. This fundamental belief has rewarded them with a long history of producing many of the top-selling blends from the Dominican Republic.
