Cigar purses have their place in history and anyone who loves them knows that the more individualized the more interesting. This one is well made using vintage materials including the terrific wooden Romeo y Julieta humidified cabinet. Shiny brass hardware has been added to the corners and an ornate latch to the middle closing evenly all around. The thick wooded box is beautiful and makes a unique one of a kind accessory.

The outside has a fantastic fabric image of Marilyn Monroe in shades of deep purple and plum. The material has the look of a tapestry with the focus becoming defined with space. Trimming with hand sewn beads decorate the side. There is a great black beaded curtain that moves and swings with the box. A whopping tassel sits off to the side. It has silk threads that hang heavy with the top portion of the tassel just as pretty.

The back has an oval burned reading Romeo Y Julieta Vintage Medallas de Oro

The inside measurements are 6" x 7" and steps in at 2" deep. The lining is top notch using a textured chocolate color fabric. The handle is beaded and sturdy using large round handpainted wooden beads along with huge glass beads. Some that measure up to 1".

The outside measures 12 1/2" from the top of the handle to the bottom the purse. 7 1/4" wide

Details like the tiny mirror added, the attention paid to preservation and a signature by the designer make this a unique purse for the collector of cigar purses.

Made in Los Angeles by Sandy, the 1980s vintage cigar purse is a classic and for a time was pretty popular in the trendy boutique scene carrying a high price tag and respect among the handmade purse fans.

The condition is great with little to no use. .
I'd love to see her circulate once again ~*~ Its been fun to own
