Gary Gails Horse and Carriage Handbag --- Small wooden box purse ---- Enid Collins Copycat

This Gary Gails box bag is in fair used vintage condition and is missing the interior mirror. The inside of the purse reads Gary Gails of Dallas signature with text, Collector's Item, and the logo, Hand Decorated for You! Made In Hong Kong. The inside does have a little black marker on one side, which may have been the 3 initials of the previous owner, but it is hard to tell. And the metal toggle at the top of the latch is loose, but it still functions. The painted exterior of this wood purse is a bit worn, but it is a fun image of a horse drawn carriage with 4 gold star ornaments attached to it. Most likely this purse was inspired from the Enid Collins Carriage Trade box bag, but that's simply a presumption on our part. There are a few chips of wood missing and the surface, especially around the edges shows some wear and light scratches. The handle is in very good shape, and appears to be a matching golden lucite. The bottom of the purse has 3 metal feet, in conjunction with the hinges (which work perfectly) which provide rest so the bottom of the purse rests above the surface.

Width - 8 and 1/4 inches
