Very rare, interesting and lovely hand-painted 1920s mesh purse with integrated make-up compartment by Whiting & Davis in very good condition. The original comb and a bit of lipstick are still in place. On one hinge, the wire holding the mesh is not perfect (see photo), but difficult to notice.
The paint is a little rubbed in places (see photos). The bag is in wonderful original condition. I could not find a marking to confirm this, but the make-up compartment appears to be silver. The chain is 12 ca.
Size of make-up compartment: 3" x 2" x about 1/2 thick 7.5 cm x 5 cm x ca. Length of bag without chain: 7 1/2 (19 cm). Width of mesh part: 4 (10 cm). Weight: 6.3 ozs (180 grams).
