We have another fabulous Whiting & Davis enameled purse with colorful floral designs, called the Dresden. The style was named after the German inventor who created the machinery , that makes the fine mesh which feels more like silk than metal. This process can be found in "Purse Masterpieces" by Lynell Schwartz pages 83 - 85.
A masterpiece is an apt description for this handbag, that features a mixture of delicate pink and light blue flowers adorned with green leaves & reddish brown stems all placed on a off white background. The artisans put many hours into the decorative silver tone frame.
The purse measures 5" L x 6" W minimal stains. The lining is no longer there, but there are no tears or separation from frame except some minor separation near hinges. Whiting & Davis makes only quality, but even woven metal mesh after decades can become delicate. This purse does require some TLC , and has been priced to allow the buyer to make any improvements as they see fit.
Enjoy the many pictures of the purse, which shows off all of the vintage appeal & company stamp into the frame.
