Whiting & Davis Gold Mesh Bag. The bag is gold colored (hard to see in photos).It is marked "Made in USA" Whiting & Davis Mesh Bags inside(on both sides of the opening). It also has a white tag inside that reads with the Whiting & Davis logo, Mesh Bags, Whiting & Davis Co. Made in USA, Trade Mark. (its hard to read and get it focused with the webcam).
It measures 6.5" wide x 5" high. The chain drops 5(which is attached one end on one side of the opening and the other end on the other side of the opening). It closes with a press down clasp and then snaps. It is lined with gold satiny sheen material with one side pocket. The lining is hand sewn in with no stains or tears.
From the research I have done, this bag is from the 1920s. It almost 100 years old and in excellent shape.
No wear on the mesh or metal with the exception of a little on the clasp at the top. There are soft gathers in the mesh. Cute bag in great condition.
Whiting & Davis has been in business making bags since 1876 in Mass. You can find them on the internet including their history. They are now known as White & Davis International. If you need to know any more information about the markings on the inside, please ask.
