1962 Enid Collins Owl
Family 'Box' Purse - A wise buy!
woman would feel great carrying
this gorgeous family
as portrayed on this world famous Enid Collins "Wise
Guys" bag. Skillfully
hand painted inside and out, it says "hand-painted
for you!, the original Box Bag by Collins of Texas, copyright 1962,
Enid Collins." The lovely Box Bag measures 6" high (not including handle),
11" wide and 3" deep. The clasp is leather and brass, the handle is
black plastic and metal, and a stunning gold metal hinge runs length
of bottom. The interior is in mint condition and the original mirror
still intact! There's some light scratches on the wood but nothing beyond
normal wear and tear. I wish I had thought to loan this 'wise
bag' to Gloraine or Florence
when they graduated.
