SOLD Gilded Starfish Cigar Box Purse



1976 Gilded Starfish Cigar Box Purse

Simply Gorgeous! The starfish is definitely the star of this upcycled cigar box handbag creation! It’s a hard plastic starfish that I painted a very rich gold and embellished with pearls. It rests front and center on  a beautiful pink shell image that has been decoupaged onto a wooden, Don Pepin Garcia, Imperials cigar box. The image has also been decoupaged onto the back of the purse. The original, lovely, authentic green seal remains intact. I lined the interior with padded and plush pink velvet and gold trim. The handle is made up of gold, pearl and crystal beads and a gold tassel. The cigar box 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 for protection as well as eight gold corner protectors on the front and back. 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 x 9 x 3″  Please note that there is a small blue ink bleed on the back of the purse from a factory stamp. ** 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. Feel free to call or text me with questions. 813-416-7071
