Vintage Gary Gails Architectural Handbag --- Wood Box Bag Geometric -- 1960s 1970s Style


Height - 4 and 1/4 inches
Width - 8 and 1/4 inches
Depth - 2 inches
Handle from tip to tip - 10 and 3/4 inches

This Gary Gails box bag is in good used vintage condition with the following conditions to report. The handle is just a tad loose, but it does function fine, and is a cool piece of wood that looks like a formed bamboo handle. The inside of the purse is in great shape, with a fully intact mirror but the mirror is old and does have some dark spots from behind where it has been glued for so many years.

It has the Gary Gails of Dallas signature with text, Collector's Item, and the logo, Hand Decorated for You! Made in Hong Kong, and it also has a spade logo.

The exterior wood is in good shape with minor scratches, and a very small chip to one corner, and the brass nail heads are a bit tarnished. The bottom of the purse has 2 metal feet, in conjunction with the hinges (which work perfectly but are also tarnished) which provide rest so the bottom of the purse stays in good condition. The latch works great as well, and also is tarnished, and there is also one small stain in the front bottom center where the tarnish from the bottom foot bled. The back side is flat, and the wood grain is fine.
