1591 Chinoiserie Cigar Box Purse
Oh so pretty! This blue chinoiserie design has been lovingly decoupaged onto a black, wooden, Perdomo, Maduro, 10th Anniversary cigar box. The box itself has beautiful, blue, black and gold labels inside and out. The outer label wraps to the back of the box and the back of the cigar box has been painted black and sealed. The oriental image has been flanked with 6 half pearls. The handle is made up of gold, blue and pearl beads and a large and fabulous gold tassel. I lined the inside with padded and plush blue velvet and gold trim- stunning! You will look for an excuse to open my upcycled cigar box bags to show them off! 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. 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.

Chinoiserie originated in the 17th an 18th centuries when Europeans were gaga over all things Chinese. Chinoiserie was once the most coveted fashion of the aristocracy. It’s not so much Chinese as it is the European- and now American – version of the original Chinese designs.
