This glittering, mid century, Whiting and Davis gold mesh purse was lovingly cherished and stored in the bottom portion of it's original box, complete with the original mirror in a small paper packet, and a loving note from a sailor son who sent the purse as a gift to his mother.
The purse is marked Whiting and Davis on the inside rim, and on the label. It is in excellent condition. I am not sure that it was ever used, or if it was it was sparingly for special occasions.
The bag measure 6 3/4" wide, 4 3/4" in height and about 2 1/4" in depth at the base. This would be a treasure for any collection, or a wonderful accessory for a bride or a prom queen.
