This is a lovely vintage Whiting and Davis purse. It features an off white beadite metal mesh exterior, pierced gold tone metal frame, kiss lock closure and metal rope chain handle. The interior is satin-lined with two slip pockets and a fabric label that reads "Whiting and Davis Mesh Bags Made in USA". The inside of the frame is stamped "2982".
The lining has some minor fading but aside from that this purse is in excellent condition. My flash made the purse frame appear almost silver in the first two photos. I did not use my flash for the last three photos and you can see the frame is a nice shiny gold tone. The purse measures approximately 9" L X 5 1/2" H (excluding handle).
