Felt Tote Purse with Mama Poodle and Puppies. 1960s. Maker: Garay. Wonderful navy blue felt (possibly wool) tote-style bag with appliqued turquoise mother poodle carting her pink poodle puppies in a mustard-yellow wagon, via a rope pull. The appliques are held on by tiny gold studs. Lined in blue felt with two interior pockets, one with zipper.

These are the purses I crave. So whimsical and clever and unusual! I’ve only seen a few Garay bags with poodles, so I feel very lucky to have found this one.
