SOLD 1264 Vintage MacDill Postcard Cigar Box Purse



1264 Vintage MacDill Postcard Cigar Box Purse

MacDill Airforce Base, here in Tampa, is where Central Command is located and an integral part of our national security. MacDill  opened in 1941 and trained bomber pilots. There is a lot of history around this  air force base, here in Tampa! This is a vintage MacDill postcard image that has been decoupaged onto the front of a Fuente, blonde, wooden Reserva No. 60, Xtra Viejo cigar box with dovetail detail in the corners. The Fuente family also reside in Tampa. The postcard reads, “Keep ’em Flying”. The back has been left in its original and authentic state. The gold seal has also been left authentically intact. I framed the vintage MacDill postcard image with 4 red crystals. The interior has the original black velvet bottom and I lined the sides with black lace. The red velvet Fuente label graces the inner lid- so pretty! The beaded handle is made up of, silver, gold, red and black beads along with a black tassel. I flipped it so that the opening is now on the top. A gold three ball lock has been added for security. Gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom of the cigar box bag 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 x 10.75 x 2.75″ HIS 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.
