Rare Whiting and Davis 1960s – ‘70s Mesh Handbag w/ Lucite Handle, Tags
A special treat for collectors and fans of Whiting and Davis purses! This delightful bag is as pretty and mint-y as it gets. The mesh is brushed aluminum, complemented by a silvery fabric lining. The beautifully shaped Lucite handle is crystal clear. The bag measures 7-3/4” wide by 6” high (not including the handle) and 2” deep. The handle adds another 3-1/2”. The purse appears to have never been worn. It has a sewn-in fabric tag inside and the blue shield-shaped Whiting and Davis paper tag is still attached to the handle. Inside is the small multi-paneled brochure that came with the purse, which has photographs of W&D purses, wallets and other accessories of the time. The small pocket mirror is includes, still in its original wrapping. Based on the style and the brochure, I estimate this handbag to be from the very late 1960s to the early 1970s. I’ve examined the purse carefully and see absolutely no issues. Condition is everything, and the condition of this handbag is excellent inside and out.
