This outstanding evening bag was made in the US by Whiting & Davis in approx the late 1920's, early 1930's! It has characteristics of both Art Nouveau & Art Deco styles, and it is stunning! It's made out of a silver-toned metal mesh, printed with black enamelling, with a fringe-style bottom edge.
The frame is silver metal, which I think is silver-plated, and the design of the frame echoes the printed design on the bag, which was a common characteristic of bags made by these designers. The bag has the original carry chain, and is unlined. This item is in amazing condition for it's age, almost an antique, and has been well stored! The bag measures 3 3/4" across at it's widest point, is 6 1/4" high, and up to 3/4 deep when filled.
It's just the thing for this season with so many Vintage Style bags out there right now, why have a cheap High street copy when you can have the REAL THING!
