Vintage Haute Couture Cigar Box Purse



1905 Vintage Haute Couture Cigar Box Purse

I just love this vintage fashion illustration image! It lists cities around the world that are known for haute couture- Milan, Paris, Palm Beach and Dallas to name a few. I surrounded the image with hot pink crystal bling. The back has been painted black and sealed. The cigar box itself is a brown, wooden, Perdomo, Habano, Connecticut with a gorgeous label on the inner lid that has been left authentically as is. I did the handle in hot pink and crystal beads and a pink silk tassel. Padded and plush hot pink velvet and pink trim line the inside of this upcycled gem so that you will look for an excuse to open it up and show it off! The cigar box clutch 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 front and back 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. 8 x 7.75 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.
