Vintage Ornate Cigar Box Purse Made From A Sancho Panza Cigar Box For Sale
This listing is for a vintage cigar box purse. It is used/pre-owned. Please refer to the Condition section for details about the grading. This item measures 11 inches high including the handle in that measurement. The cigar box portion itself measures 6 and 5/8 inches high, 7 and 1/4 inches wide, and 2 inches high. This purse was customized by using a vintage wood Sancho Panza " Hecho a Mano Honduras - Double Maduro " cigar box. The inside lid has a similar marking along with the added words " LA MANCHA ". I have seen lots of cigar box purses and most of them are quite plain. The person who customized this one did a nice job. They added a decorative, flowery pattern fabric to the back of the cigar box to protect that side from scratches when it is laid down on a flat surface on that side. The inside of the cigar box was lined with a burgundy felt which I presume was not there originally when it had cigars in it. The cigars are long gone, of course. The metal closing clasp still keeps the lid secure. The handle of this custom cigar box purse is quite ornate. I showed a close up scan of the handle and its decorative adornments. The metalware on the purse handle is tarnished with a natural patina as is the metalware on the back side of the purse that is securing the flowery fabric in place. Cigar box purses are a novelty. They are fun and decorative, not to mention this one can actually be used as a purse.
