A charming vintage mesh purse featuring a hand enameled lid and white mesh body. The mesh has been painted in an off-white color to match the lid. We find hand painted pink roses completing the decoration. The interior is lined with a cream colored acetate and we see that the lid has a mirror so you can quickly apply a bit of lipstick. These little mesh bags are surprising durable and perfect for a night on the town or a special event such as a wedding.

The interior tag tells us that this was manufactured by Whiting & Davis; the leader in mesh hand bags and purses. We would date this to the late 1920's to early 1930s for a time frame. The wristlet strap was perfect for the flappers during that era.

Measures 5 1/2 inches long with a 3 inch drop for the wrist strap. The lid is 2 1/2 inches in diameter. We did not find a bit of damage to this beauty. The mirror and interior are in pristine condition as well. Would make a perfect gift for the purse lover!
