1635 Shaken Not Stirred Cigar Box Purse II
Same as the other darling martini cigar box purse on my site- just a bit bigger! This is one of my very favorite images to use when making my little objects d’ art! I must say, I do love a good martini every now and then. This cigar box purse is adorned with this oh so cute martini and red crystals pop the pimentos in the olives! The martini image is flanked by black bling for even more fun! The cigar box is a black, wooden, Perdomo, Inmenso, Seventy Maduro and I chose to leave the black, red and gold labels that wrap to the back of the box. I painted the back black and gave it a protective coating. Eight gold purse feet have been added to the bottom and back for more protection. The inside of the up cycled cigar box bag has been loved with padded and plush black velvet and red trim and the beautiful, authentic Perdomo label graces the inner lid. The beaded handle is made up of red, gold black and red crystal beads and a fat black tassel. I flipped the cigar box so that the opening is now on the top and it has been given a gold three ball lock for security. 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. 8x 9 x 3” This would be the perfect bag for spring and summer! I would definitely recommend getting one of my chunky gold chains for these crocodile bags! 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: Many people believe that Perdomo Cigars started just a couple of decades ago, but the truth is that the company’s roots go much farther back than one would assume. It all started with Silvio Perdomo, who was born and raised just outside of Havana. In the 1930s, Silvio was an apprentice for Cuesta y Cia, and that’s where he learned about the cigar industry and developed his love for the craftsmanship behind cigars. Throughout the 1930s and 40s, Silvio worked his way up the ladder, as did his son Nick, who eventually finding himself employed by the largest tobacco company in Cuba. But, in 1959, Silvio was arrested due to conflicts of the Cuban Revolution. It wasn’t until 1974 when he was finally granted permission to immigrate to the United States. In 1976, after following his father to the United States, Nick moved to Miami. Nick’s son, Nick Junior, decided that he wanted to follow in the tradition of his family and begin working in the cigar industry. For years, he served as an air traffic controller, but in the evening, he was hard at work launching a cigar empire from nothing. After all, Nick Junior had no experience with the cigar industry other than enjoying the cigars that were given to him by his father and grandfather.
After years and years of mastering his craft, Nick Junior was prepared to officially launch his business. In 1992, he launched Nick’s Cigar Co in Miami. At first, the company was about as threadbare as they come. He had only enough employees to count on one finger, with one of them being his own wife. However, he had a good formula. Central American filler combined with Ecuadorian wrappers created a full-bodied flavor that was quickly becoming a sought-after one in the cigar industry. It took only five years for Nick’s Cigar Co to require a larger facility, simply because the demand had become too high. In the first year, the company sold a million cigars, and Nick’s father, Nick Senior, had to step in to help. Eventually, a second manufacturing facility was constructed in Nicaragua, which helped even out the workflow so that the company could continue to thrive. It’s safe to say that Perdomo Cigars had a massive influence on the cigar industry of the 90s. The original Perdomo was one of the first box-pressed cigars of the era, and the trend quickly caught on.
