What I have here is a 1920's Whiting & Davis metal mesh bag with an Art Deco design. Enameled metal mesh tiles are connected by hand, each tile to create this wonderful design. The color scheme is black, grays, and silver/metal. I was told this is in excellent condition and a wonderful example of these bags which are highly collectible.It has a metail frame with a clasp at top. The bag is signed inside on the frame. May or may not be original lining. A wonderful lady contacted me to give me some helpful information on this bag. Apparently it is a "Persian Carpet" pattern and this exact bag (with a different chain) is featured on page 97 in the book "Whiting & Davis, The Perfect Mesh", by Pina and Johnson.
