Presented is 1920's Art Deco fabulousness in a Whiting and Davis metal mesh cocktail purse! The purse is richly colorful abstract floral in shades of hot pink, orange, plum, green and brown against a taupe background. The gold-filled frame along the top of the purse has a handsome floral motif and a beautifully ornate clasp, and the wrist chain is a series of long thin ovals decorated with chevrons--just gorgeous. And that's only the outside!
Wait until you see the celery green and perfect silk lining with pocket on the inside! The top of the purse frame inside bears the Whiting and Davis Co.The condition of the purse is very good, with no damage or repairs, just a slight fading of the exterior colors and a tiny bit of darkening near the clasp. If you see one tiny bit of thread near the frame hinge on one side, you can trim it yourself.
I will leave that task for the very lucky you! Dimensions: About 5 inches by 8 inches, with a 7 inch long chain handle tm. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution. The item "Vintage Whiting and Davis Art Deco Mesh Purse Evening Wrist Handbag" is in sale since Sunday, March 31, 2019.
