DESCRIPTION: This small Whiting Davis handbag shows its age in a unique way. The classic frame and front metal clasp is mottled with patina that blends into a mesh body with silver-gold appearance and the same patina. The chain top handle is embossed with design and inside the bag, is an ivory taffeta lining with one pocket. The bag has been polished to enhance the mottled patina which brings character to this vintage bag. It's no longer 'perfect' but it is very vintage.
WHY I LIKE IT: The color of the mesh has aged to a patina blend of silver and gold, an unusual mesh color. It’s a perfect size to carry lip gloss, credit card & ID.

DIMENSIONS: 5-7/8” (at bottom) x 4-7/8” h x 4-1/2” frame. Chain: 3” drop.
