1618 Vintage Tampa Bay Beaches Map Cigar Box Purse
This absolutely adorable vintage map shows the Tampa St. Pete area from Port Richey to Ruskin and all points and beaches in between along with water skiers, children playing in the sand, boats and fish. This vintage Tampa Bay Beaches map image has been so popular! No two are ever exactly the same. The image is circa 1950’s before the Skyway Bridge was built. I decoupaged the image onto a large, wooden H. Upmann cigar box and left the labels authentically as is. I added quite a bit of clear crystal bling to flank the sides- because I could! In keeping with this theme, the inside as been line with Tampa fabric featuring the Gasparilla ship, USF Bulls and cigars. The inside of the cigar sides has the original blue sides and the H. Upmann logo on the inner lid. The handle is made up of blue, green, and silver beads and a faux leather sea foam tassel and pom poms. 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. 7.5 x 12 x 2.75″ I promise compliments! 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.
