A great vintage Whiting Davis metal mesh purse with a fabulous celluloid frame.
The purse is from their line of 'Alumesh' -enameled aluminum mesh, aluminum was used for its durability and lightness.
The links are domed to mimic beads, the aluminum is enameled in creamy white.
The celluloid frame is awesome- the molded frame and a twisted rope like design around it and a chunky knob snap closure.
The celluloid handle is made from large oval double links.
The inside is lined in dark purple-blue heavy grosgrain silk, it has a small slide pocket on the side.
The Whiting Davis label is sewn into the seam of the slide pocket.
Measures 8.75" across the very top of the frame, 12" across the bottom, and 8.5" long, the handle is 14" long.
Condition is excellent, no damage and minimal wear. There are no missing metal links, no enamel loss, the frame snaps very securely. The hinges work perfectly and the lining is clean.
A fun Art Deco period metal mesh purse c1930s.
