Hello there! In addition to Madame Sassy's curiosities and altered art and wearables, I will be selling lots of vintage clothing, purses, bakelite, accessories and knick knacks. Please bookmark me as a favorite and check back often!

This is a very collectible handbag stamped by Enid Collins on the inside in the ever so Summery and Desirable "Jewel Garden" pattern. It is a bucket style handbag, perfect for your summer cuteness wardrobe needs!

The purse is a fabric overlay with wooden bottom, like most Enid Collins' purses of the time. The outside body of hte purse is a woven canvas in an off-white color. There is scrolling goldtone silk screened/painted vine work on the front of the bag with amazing large floral jewels! The handles and flap closure (note the purse is an open topped purse and does not close entirely) are leather. The purse is signed Jewel Garden on the right front and also the Enid Collins trademark is stamped on the inside of the purse as photographed.

The jewels on the purse are all there!!! They are in beautiful hues of orange, yellow, golden and bronze with some clear and white jewels as well. Very Pretty indeed. All of the metal hardware on this purse is there and it is all brass colored to match this beautiful purse.

Measurements of this bag are:

10.5" tall
11" long
4" deep on the bottom
2.5" deep on top
handles are approx. 6" tall/long

Condition of this bag is Vintage Very Good.
Flaws to note are only slightly discoloring of the offwhite fabric, a little wear to the leather and some of the jewels are slightly worn, but not missing. Note the leather is not hard or cracked, its still soft and supple, the leather is just a little worn. This is a very usuable purse in fine condition for every day usage!

Please see my vintage condition rating chart below for further explanation and understand that you are purchasing a used vintage item that is 40+ years old.
