SOLD 955 Vintage Ybor 7th Ave. Cigar Box Purse



#955 $65 Vintage Ybor 7th Ave. Cigar Box Purse

This is a beautifully up-cycled Rocky Patel, The Edge, black cigar box that has been turned into a purse. A tan, indented edge wraps around the outer lid. A vintage 1930’s scene of 7th Avenue in Ybor City has been decoupaged onto the front. Many Cubans and Italians settled in Ybor and it was, and still is, known for it’s cigar factories and cigar heritage. It’s a big part of Tampa history. The scene depicts the trolley and tracks and the old Kress department store under a full moon. I flipped the box so that the opening is now on the top and gave it a heavy gold lock closure for security. Gold purse feet protect the back and bottom. 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. The handle is made up of  black, brown, gold and silver beads and a substantial brown tassel. The interior has  been lined in padded black velvet and black lace trim. The inner lid is done in the original Rocky Patel black velvet with silver lettering. 7.75 x 9.25 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.
