#887 $65 Vintage Gasparilla Label Cigar Box Purse

This purse is absolutely darling for anyone here in the Tampa area or pirate lovers everywhere! We celebrate Gasparilla in January. A fictitious pirate, Jose Gaspar, comes into Tampa Bay with his band of pirates on a flotilla and takes over the city. Everyone wants to be a pirate! This cigar box purse starts out as a white, wooden Arandoza cigar box. I flipped it so that the opening is now at the top and gave it a heavy gold lock closure for security. A vintage image of a pirate drinking rum and a flamenco dancer with a ship in the background adorns the front of the cigar box purse along with 4 blue crystals. The back of the cigar box purse has been left original. Gold purse feet have been added to protect the back and bottom of the purse 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 cross body chain in the last photo is available but not included. The handle is made up of beautiful black, blue, silver and skull with crystal-eyed beads and a black tassel. The inside of the cigar box purse has the original black velvet lid- so pretty- with the gold label and has been lined in padded zebra fabric and blue ball trim.  7.5 x 7.75 x 2.25 THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! 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.
