This is a rare (hard to find) Enid Collins of Texas purse from the mid-century. The "Castaway" signed Enid Collins bag is in excellent condition. It was made during only one three month (summer) period, therefore it is quite a collectible. I've only seen a few in my searches for this particular hand bag.
Jeweled flowers spill out of a black painted basket. This has the name Castaway on one side as well as the Collins running horse logo on the right side.
The bag itself has one spangle missing on the decorations of the basket and one missing at the top of the basket. The leather side pocket is in excellent condition. The inside of the purse shows little wear. There are two small soil spots on the purse. When the purse is cleaned, I'm sure they will come out. This truly is a fantastic find!
