#915 $65 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse

This is a beautiful, wooden, Hemingway, Reserve Especial, Fuente cigar box with dovetail corners that has been up cycled into a purse with the vintage post card image of the Tampa Bay Hotel which is now part of the University of Tampa. With it’s beautiful minarets,  it is truly one of Tampa’s finest landmarks. Clear crystals have been placed in the corners of the image. The cigar box itself has been flipped to accommodate the decoupaged image so that the opening is now on the side.The back has been painted black. Gold feet have been added to the back for protection. A heavy gold lock closure has been added 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 cross body chain in the last photo is available but not included. The handle is made up of beautiful black, brown, silver and gold beads and sports a black tassel. The inside of the cigar box purse has the original Fuente red velvet lid and label and the rest has been lined, by me, with padded black velvet.7 x 7.75 x 3 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.
