Lux Be a Lady Cigar Box Purse
“So fancy”, is the best way to describe this Luz Be a Lady up cycled cigar box gem! The cigar box is a Julius Caeser, (see history below) Diamond Crown, Toro by JC Newman- black pleather and the original purple suede lining and label that graces the inner lid. Gold trim has been added for an even more royal look! I added a huge, clear rivoli button crystal to the flap, snap closure and attached the word “LUX” to the front in all done in sparkly clear crystals- fabulous if I do say so myself. The handle is made up of gold, silver and crystal beads and a fat gold tassel. Eight gold corner protectors have been added to the front and back of the purse. 6.5 x 9 x 2.5″ 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.

History: Born in 1875 in a small Hungarian village, Julius Newman and his family sailed across the Atlantic in 1888 in search of the American Dream. With no middle name, Julius was required to choose one before workers could complete his entry paperwork. Stumped, he solicited help from the immigration officer who suggested Caesar, after the great Roman. Julius relished in the thought of being named after a historic leader and conqueror but due to a typo by the attendant – Caeser was spelled with an “e”. Thus Julius Caeser (J.C.) Newman, American citizen, was born. Unlike his brothers who became tailors, J.C. had a yearning to make cigars. So, his mother paid an experienced cigar maker $3.00 a month to teach her young son the art of hand cigar rolling. Little did J.C. know that day in May 1895, when he started his company and hand-rolled his first 500 cigars for the family grocer, that he was establishing a family legacy that would be flourishing four generations later. In fact, of the 42,000 cigar manufacturers licensed in 1895, J.C. Newman Cigar Company is the only premium cigar maker that is still owned and operated by the founding family. In 2010, to celebrate J.C.’s 135th birthday and our company’s 115th anniversary, Diamond Crown Julius Caeser was released. Diamond Crown Julius Caeser cigars are meticulously rolled by hand in small batches by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic. As with all Diamond Crown cigars, Julius Caeser is held to the highest standard of quality control. The Newmans reside here, in Tampa. The J. C. Newman Cigar Factory is the oldest in town and has just been given a multi million dollar renovation.
