Wooden Box Bag. 1960s. Maker: Gary Gails. Small cigar box-style handbag made of wood and decorated with geometric wood shapes, then stained. What you can't see: The intricate dovetail joints. This purse was created by Gary Gails (aka Gary Gail without an "s") of Dallas, known for his many purse styles, especially those made of wood. On the inside, opposite the built-in mirror, it says “Collectors Item by Gary Gails Dallas – Decorated for You – Japan.” Isn’t that nice? He knew it would be a collector’s item. Owned by a collector. Who collects items. Prophetic!
