Vintage Unused 1940s Garay NWT Cloth Handbag Purse


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful late 1940s handbag purse made by Garay, unused and still with its original hang tag affixed to it.  The purse is made of brown cloth in a “suede” finish.  The interior is finished in brown satin with four compartments - one elasticized pocket built onto one side and three compartments on the other, the top one zippered.  It has brass coloured hardware.  The cloth label affixed to the interior reads “Garay Made in U.S.A.”  The hang tag reads simply “Garay”.  The purse is in excellent condition except for some scuffing to the lining just below the clasp - why it is like that, I don’t know, but the rest of the purse is pristine.  There is a gold string on the interior that appears to be cut - my assumption is that a change purse had been affixed to it, but was removed.  The purse measures 9 1/2” in width and 9” in height, including the clasp - the handle has a drop of 6 1/2”.  It’s unusual to find a purse of this era still with its original hang tag affixed - nice addition to a collection!
