Waiting for Mom keepsake

Waiting for Mom Vintage Cigar Box Keepsake

This vintage cardboard cigar box is finished with rich mahogany brown with ribbon and and gold trim with an image of my painting “Waiting for Mom”. Box measures approximately 8.5″ x 6″ x 2″ high. Price includes shipping.



I added a border of 3/8″ white grosgrain ribbon with tiny gold speckles in it to frame the artwork on the top. I also painted mahogany panels on the sides and added a border around them, then detailed decorative swirls in gold inside the panels.

These cigar boxes are the old-style cardboard type, the ones we probably all grew up with around the house, holding photos and hardware and handkerchiefs. As you would expect these boxes are gently worn, in varying states of wear and tear, written on, watermarked, with holes from thumbtacks and dinged up corners and warped lids, but still usable to create something new.

The artwork is printed on acid-free label stock and adhered to the top surface.

Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.
