1775 Cliquetis Cigar Box Purse

I can’t get enough of these gorgeous vintage scarves and really love to adorn my cigar box creations with them. This black and gold, equestrian scarf image has been decoupaged onto the front of a black, wooden, Brick House, Mighty Mighty (yes, like the song) cigar box. The lovely scarf, designed for Hermes in 1972 by Julia Abadie, was named Cliquetis, which is the French verb meaning to jingle or clank. Tassels, bits, a fancy saddle bag and various other jinglers and clankers make up the mix. I added six rows of black bling to each side of the image to jazz it up even more! The back of the up cycled cigar box has been left in it’s authentically original state as has the Brick House plantation scene label on the inner lid. I lined the inside of this beauty with padded and plush black velvet and gold trim. The handle is made up of all gold beads and a fat gold tassel. The purse 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 and eight gold corner protectors  to the back and front corners 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. 7.25 x9.25 x 3.5″ ** 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.
