1930’s - 1940’s Whiting and Davis Silver Mesh Purse


Measures:  7” wide, 5.5” top to bottom, 4.5” wrist chain drop

In very good condition, this purse has an art deco geometric clasp that lifts magically opening the top of the purse to reveal a creamy satin interior with a side pocket and the signature Whiting and Davis tag.  The purse has not come away from the frame at all, the wrist chain is a delightful twist of links with no breaks, firmly attached to the frame.  The mesh is fully intact with very little if any tarnish.  The clasp and frame do have a mild bit of tarnish which is to be expected with the age of the purse.  The lining shows signs of use near the top but the lower inside is free from spots and stains.  This elegant little purse has lots of life left and would be a wonderful accessory for any posh (or not so posh!) occasion
