Partagás Oval Lapel Pin
A classic sterling silver Partagás lapel pin for those special cigar evenings out. This oval logo became more embellished over the second half of the nineteenth century, as Partagás won more and more medals at international fairs. These medals soon appeared in embossed gold on either side of the oval cartouche, while two armorial shields were added above. We prefer this earlier, simpler design, which works perfectly as a lapel pin. (face 19 x 16 mm).
A Little History. Don Jaime Partagás Ravelo built his eponymous factory, Real Fábricas de Tabaco Partagás, at Calle Industria 60, Havana in 1845. The building is more than iconic – its wooden galleries and weathered floor boards retain the scent of a million cigars and its pastel coloured walls breath Havana’s intense humidity. In creating this collection, we’ve let 170 years of cigar history wash over us: the iconic factory, annual festivals, royal connections, rolling room lectors, signature red and gold and, last but not least, the wonderful earthy tobacco.
