1676 Large Red Pagoda Cigar Box Purse
I have just fallen in love with all of these beautiful chinoiserie images and can’t help myself in passing them on to you in the way of my Humadorable cigar boxes! This is another pagoda, chinoiserie cigar box done in red with four half pearl accents and on a huge red cigar box. The box is a red, wooden, GTO, Pain Killer, Mo Fo, Grand Toro that held 25 large cigars. The tassel is made up of all gold, wooden beads and a gold tassel. You will look for an excuse to open it up to show off the interior- lined in padded and plush red velvet and gold trim- so gorgeous! The back of the up cycled cigar box purse has been painted black, sealed, and four gold corner protectors have been added to the back and four to the front of the purse. 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. 6.5 x 10 x 4″ – nice and deep! THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! These add to the 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: Dr. Oscar Rodriguez was a long time lover of cigars growing up in the Dominican Republic. It is part of the culture to smoke cigars from a young age and was tradition in his family. He has chose to pursue this tradition with passion and create GTO Dominican Cigar and GTO Tabacalera Dominicana. A cigar smoker since he was in his early 20’s, Oscar has a keen talent for blending very tasty cigars that adhere to his family’s rich Dominican Republic tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing roots and traditions. What most people like most about the personable cigar maker, who now splits his time between the Dominican Republic and traveling throughout the Southeastern United States, is that he is most approachable and enjoys talking with fellow cigar smokers at events, shops and lounges. There is nothing he loves more than sharing a smoke with his patrons and clientele. Oscar’s family has been planting, nurturing and carefully cultivating first-generation Cuban seed tobacco on their farm within the fertile soil of the Valle del Cibao in the Dominican Republic for some 96 years. In 2010, after learning the craft well from his father and other family members involved in the cigar tobacco growing and manufacturing business (who offered him more than 80 years of cumulative experience in the planting, growing and cultivating of cigar tobacco), Oscar launched Tabacalera GTO Dominicana and to manufacture his own GTO brand of premium cigars.
