On A Date at The Cafe Wooden Box Purse ----- Gary Gails ---- Enid Collins Copycat
This Gary Gails box bag is in very good used vintage condition. The inside of the purse is in good shape with very few signs of use. The interior lid has the Gary Gails of Dallas signature with text, Collector's Item, and the logo, Hand Decorated for You! The mirror is tarnished and the edges are lined with cord and the ends are frayed where they meet. The handle looks like lucite / acrylic and is in very good shape. The hardware (latch, etc) shows some minor tarnish and is loose allowing about 1/4 of an inch opening. The bottom of the purse has 3 metal feet, in conjunction with the hinges which provide rest so the bottom of the purse stays in good condition. The wood that holds the lid to the side on the right hand top side is slightly loose --- will wiggle out about 1/4 of an inch --- a drop of invisible glue would take care of it. The back has light scratching from being carried and there are a few light dings along the edges.
The purse has a wonderful painted image of two dogs dining, a blue poodle, and the other dog I believe is a cocker spaniel. It looks like a boutique or Parisian cafe setting, and it appears they are having some meat on the bone, as well as beverage with straws. This purse is adorable, and is a fun size and would work as a purse for a child or young teen.
