20s Whiting and Davis Purse
8 1/2" h (top to tassel) x 2 1/2" w (at frame) to 4 1/2" w. (mesh purse)
5 1/2" w. opening
One look at this gorgeously silver top framed fine mesh purse and you can feel the antiquity of this amazing collectible. The mesh is soft as silk and the detailing along the top frame is simply exquisite. Notice the classic detail of the chain/mesh tassel at the bottom of the bag. The Whiting and Davis Mark is clearly visible along the interior of the framed top.
In good vintage condition, this beautifully aged item is missing the original chain handle, but another can easily be added for convenience. At the corner of one hinge, the mesh has begun to pull away from the frame, but this can be easily fixed. Also, the Closure Button is no longer on the top of the frame, but the purse seems to keep closed well. There is some slight discoloring to the silver mesh due to normal patina adding dimension and historical value.
