Ooh la la! There is a bit of the French Belle Epoque era in the poppy paper used to decorate the outside of this cigar box purse. But it goes way beyond from there into floral motifs. There is a plaid, irridescence, and even a gold marbled paper, of the type typically found on the insides of books, in this mad riot of reds, pinks and gold.


The fold-down handle is a vintage treasure, an arch style in absolutely new condition. The snap hinge is ornate with a matching colored pink glass stone. The hinge is inset inside the purse and is also gold colored. The door of this purse opens sideways, rather than from the top. I wanted nothing about this purse to be the usual or expected. The shocking pink feet are geometric wooden shapes so as not to be missed. More flowers, more pink, more irridescence adorn the inside of the purse in order to knock you over as you check your reflection in the 2 in diameter mirror attached to the inside lid. Comes with a detachable rhinestone and PU "leather" tassel. Did I miss anything?!

    Due to the handmade, one-of-a-kind nature of my artwork purses, I do not accept returns.

    Please examine the photos of the item closely to see any intrinsic flaws and imprefections in these upcycled art pieces. The substrate that I decorate is a wooden box manufactured by another entity outside of my control. I'm happy to answer any questions you have about this item. Feel free to contact me.
