This is a lovely old mesh purse from the Art Deco era by Whiting Davis. It has the Whiting Davis hang tag on the inside and features fabulous black green and orange swirls on the outside of the mesh with a fringed bottom. It has quite an ornate silverplate frame and a lovely linked chain. It measures 11.5 inches long from the chain to the bottom when laid out flat. The purse area is about 4 by 6.5 inches. There is a little wear and where the frame attaches to the sides of the purse at the bottom of the frame, there are some unhooked links, but this is not uncommon on these delicate purses. Overall, though, this is a beautiful old piece and a fine example of the Art Deco designs that Whiting Davis did so well.
