Decopauge Gaming-Themed Wooden Box Purse. 1960s/70s. Maker: Annie Laurie Originals – Palm Beach. The title pretty much says it all, but here are a few more details: This wood purse has a laminated finish. The decorations almost look painted on, but you can feel them, giving the bag a 3-D effect. It’s octagonal—a really interesting shape—not counting the top, which features a plastic handle and roulette wheel. A large Jack of diamonds is on the front, along with tinier versions of the King and Queen of hearts. There are chess, checkers and backgammon pieces on the sides, and coins, dice and a teensy ten of diamonds playing card on the back. The quilty red lining is accented by shmancy ivory braid trim. It has some wear, which you can see in the photo, but it is a fabulous purse. I love casino-motif bags. Would like to have more. But there’s that whole paying-the-mortgage thing I have to worry about. Silly mortgage.
