Lovely ART DECO Whiting and Davis Enameled Mesh HandbagLovely ART DECO Whiting and Davis Enameled Mesh HandbagLovely ART DECO Whiting and Davis Enameled Mesh HandbagLovely ART DECO Whiting and Davis Enameled Mesh Handbag

Simply lovely Art Deco mesh handbag made by the famous company, Whiting and Davis during the height of flapper fashion... the 1920's. Whiting and Davis, an American firm created their first mesh bag in 1892. This sweet purse is very colorful and in remarkable condition for the age. The bag measures 7 1/4" long not including the clasp and is approximately 4" wide at the frame. The twisted link chain is 9" in length. It retains the original metal hang tag label inside that reads, Whiting and Davis mesh bags, made in the USA. The enamel features an abstract design in teal green and lavender against a pale pink background. The geometric design is complimented by pointed fringe apron at the bottom. The geometric gold frame features a raised scroll and floral motif all lending to the Art Deco flair. These purses were a highly coveted accessory for the flappers to wear with their knee length chemise dresses. Condition is great with a small amount of separation to the mesh in the hinge area. See photos. This could easily be repaired with fine wire. Other than this, the bag looks to have never been used with vibrant bright colors and little to no enamel loss.
