DESCRIPTION: This vintage black mesh shoulder/clutch handbag is absolutely timeless. Made of black aluminum armour mesh from Whiting-Davis, the size is perfect to hold ‘the basics’ while you accessorize with flair. The shape of the goldtone metal frame is contemporary with a ball knob closure and a (very) long goldtone chain to either tuck inside or wear on your shoulder. The interior is of black taffeta without pocket…the overall effect is brilliant in simplicity.
Whiting-Davis International was founded in 1876 as a leading maker of aluminum armour mesh handbags and remains a worldwide leader in its industry.
WHY I LIKE IT: The size will not accommodate a cell phone, and that’s why I like it. Cheers to one evening away from it all!
