THANK YOU FOR CHECKING OUT MY AUCTIONS. I have listed many Handbags please look at all of them. 2 Vintage Mesh PURSES, SCARCE DANSANT Pair, Whiting & Davis Princess Mary, FINE.
Both made by Whiting & Davis Co. Both purses stamped inside with the Whiting & Davis logo and with PRINCESS MARY see photos #9 through #12. Fine gold-tone mesh with the front flap that lifts to open; designed by Whiting & Davis, called the Princess Mary. This is one of a pair call Dansant with a coin purse attached at the handle to the main purse of same or similar style.
Described in a Whiting & Davis ad as Dancing Bracelet Mesh Bags, the Dansant was introduced in 1923. Each has a short chain handle that attaches to the main mesh handle.
One slider is for adjusting the handle to the wrist. About 15 hanging down as in photo #3. Exclusive of the handle, the main purse is 6 long and 4 to 4-1/2 wide. The coin purse alone is 2-3/4 long and 2-1/4 to 2-1/2 wide.The button on the front of each flap is engraved with: W. Let me know if you would like to see a photo of that. There is a couple of strings missing from the fringe on the top of the main purse left side looking at the purse. Photo #6 shows it and next to the missing one or two strings there is a long piece.
No holes, no soil or tarnish. Please look closely at the photographs since they are an important part of the description.
