1693 Brides de Gala Yellow Cigar Box Purse
Brides de gala is a design by Hugo Grygkar, created in 1957 for a silk scarf. Its name is reminiscent of the jingling of buckles, punctuated by the majestic sound of horses’ hooves. The bridle aesthetics and balanced composition are still relevant today. I love to use these images of vintage, equestrian, silk scarves to adorn my cigar box bag creations and this one is no exception! I framed the orange and yellow Hermes scarf image with some clear crystal bling for a pop and added gold corner protectors. The box itself is a yellow Victor Sinclair Limited cigar box. I recently found a cachet of these fabulous, little but deep, yellow, wooden cigar boxes. I’m always looking for cigar boxes and I must say it’s just another aspect of my job that I love! The back of the purse is painted black, sealed, and given gold purse feet and gold corner protectors. Gold purse feet have also been added to the bottom of the purse to keep it clean. I lined this little beauty with padded and plush orange velvet and gold trim and the handle has been done in gold, wooden beads, an orange and crystal bead in the center, and a gold and rust tassel. The purse has been flipped so that the opening is now on the side and has been given a gold three ball lock 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 chain in the last photo is available, but not included. 5.5 x 6.75 x 4.75″ ** 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! I always ship insured.
