Beautiful Art Deco purse made of gold mesh. Never used, still in the original box. Was a gift to my aunt. Whiting & Davis was a well known designer and manufacturer of handbags of this era. The shiny frame reflects an art deco design with a pull up front clasp to open and close.
The handbag dimensions are: Height of purse is 4 1/2", height of gold chain is 3 1/2". Height including chain is 8". Width of purse is 5".
The box is 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" x 1 1/2".
From 1912 through 1928 gold Whiting & Davis bags were fashioned of either vermeil (gold plating over sterling silver) or gold plating over brass.
