SOLD Afternoon at the Yacht Club Cigar Box Purse



1672 Afternoon at the Yacht Club Cigar Box Purse

I’ve used this vintage Hermes scarf image before and it’s just too fabulous not to bring it back! The black and white, nautical, vintage scarf image with crown and anchors has been decoupaged onto a white, wooden Aladino Toro cigar box. I further embellished it with a gold and rhinestone anchor brooch and six clear crystals- so extra gorgeous!! I lined this little up cycled beauty with padded and plush black velvet and black lace trim. The handle is made up of black, gold, pearl and crystal beads and a substantial black tassel. The inner lid has been left authentically as is and boasts a fun Cuban coffee bar street scene painting- Very unusual!I flipped the cigar box so that the opening is now on the top and gave it a gold three ball closure for security. The back has been painted black and sealed. Eight gold corner protectors have been added to the front and back of the up cycled purse. 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. 6.5 x 8.5 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. 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!

History: Aladino is one of three brands made by Julio R. Eiroa and his son Justo. The JRE website describes the Aladino as “a true ‘Classic Old-Fashioned Cigar’”, and  “a ‘puro’ of authentic Corojo grown in the Eiroa Tobacco Farm in Honduras from the original Cuban seed of Corojo.”  Corojo is the prized wrapper leaf originally grown in Cuba between the 1930’s and the 1990’s. It got its name from the farm, or vega, on which it was grown, Santa Ines del Corojo in Pinar del Rio. Today, due to its susceptibility to Blue Mold and Black Shank, no Corojo is grown in Cuba. The Eiroa farms in Honduras is one of very few to grow “authentic” Corojo from original Corojo seed. Although Corojo was traditionally used exclusively for wrapper, Julio R. Eiroa uses it for binder and filler as well. With the exception of the Aladino Maduro, which has a San Andres wrapper, the Aladino cigar is 100% Honduran Corojo. The Eiroa family has tobacco farming in its DNA. Their lineage traces back to Cuba where Julio’s father, Generoso, had been growing tobacco since the 1900’s. But after the Cuban Revolution, and the nationalization of their farms, the family relocated to Tampa, Florida. Eventually, Julio settled in Danli, Honduras, and in 1963 began cultivating tobacco for Camacho Cigars. Soon after, Julio started buying government owned tobacco farms, and, through his expertise, helped establish the Jamastran Valley as one of the premium tobacco-growing regions in the world.
