Antique Whiting & Davis Co Handmade Sterling Silver Chainmail Ladies Purse 1900. Internally stamped STERLING W&D for Whiting & Davis Co and made in America around the early 1900's.
This bag would have been handmade entirely in sterling silver. It was not until 1912 that Whiting & Davis Co moved to machine mass production of their iconic chainmail bags. This is a really nice example of their earlier work, definitely one to collect.
The height with the strap extended is 36cms. Opens & closes well, there is a hole either side just under the frame, see photo, otherwise great condition.This is the buyers / importers responsibility. _gsrx_vers_841 GS 7.0.16 (841).
