1597 “Gucci” Bee Cigar Box Purse
This classic, Ashton, VSG Belicoso No. 1 cigar box purse has been left pretty much authentically as is with the exception of a designer inspired, upcycled bee brooch that has been added to the front. Four black crystals frame the bee brooch. The cigar box itself is a blonde, wooden cigar box with dovetail detailing in the corners and beautiful red, black and gold labels to include lions, crown and crest that wraps around to the back of the box. The back has been painted black and sealed. I adorned the inside with padded red velvet and black lace. The handle is made up of lovely gold, red and black beads and a black tassel- so pretty! 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. 6.25 x 9.5 x 2.25″ ** 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. ** Please note: there is a small black spot on the left side of the image as well as a scratch on the left side of the cigar box. This would and does not bother me in the least, but if you are super picky, this may not be the one for you. 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: Ashton is among the most revered premium cigar brands in the world. Ashton cigars are handmade in the legendary Tabacalera A. Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic from only the finest aged tobaccos. Ashton has been a perennial “Top 3” brand in the U.S. for more than thirty years and is sold in over 60 countries. Brand founder Robert Levin created Ashton in the early 1980s. A highly respected veteran of the cigar industry, Levin grew up in the 1950s and ‘60s working in his father’s historic cigar shop, Holt’s Cigar Company, in Philadelphia. He took the business over in the 1970s, successfully expanding its retail and mail order presence. Following years of steady growth, Levin applied his ambition to the creation of his own cigar brand. Levin debuted Ashton in 1985. Shortly thereafter, he partnered with the Fuente family to produce the brand, due to their unequivocal talent, dedication, and passion for premium tobaccos. Carlos Fuente Sr. and his son, Carlito Fuente, had been making premium cigars of their own for generations. The Fuente family’s uncompromising standards for taste, construction, and consistency has drawn consumers to their cigars for over a century. Their ability to embrace and absorb the production of Ashton while preserving an exceptional level of quality was unquestioned. Levin successfully expanded the Ashton portfolio to satisfy the evolving tastes of cigar lovers with the introduction of several now-iconic blends, including the original Ashton Classic, Ashton Aged Maduro, Ashton Cabinet, Ashton VSG, Ashton ESG, and more. It is a formula the company follows closely to this day, adhering to the tenets of brand building, longevity, and tradition. Today, Ashton is a father-and-son operation headed by Robert Levin and his son, Sathya Levin. Together, they preserve and build on the company’s extensive reputation for creating premium cigars of superior quality and lasting prestige. A shared ambition between the Levin and Fuente families to produce the finest cigars in the world is the foundation of a significant mutual partnership.
