1940s Hide-Away Garter Purse

Hide-Away Garter Purse 1940s. Jiffy Coin Purse Co. Suede mini purse (shaped like a tiny water bottle) to fasten to garter. Has metal snap (green with age on the underside) and original instructions and (torn) plastic packaging. “…easily attached to garter buckle inside your stocking” and “splendid gift for men and women.”

I adore vintage novelty purses, although I don’t think this was a novelty back in the ‘40s. I believe it was used for practical purposes. How cool is it that it not only survived this long, but is in such beautiful condition?
