What a lovely piece of handbag history, ready for you to use and love. This is a rare gold on black raised mesh handbag from Whiting & Davis.

This bag has some weight to it, but not too heavy to carry all evening. And the mesh feels wonderful, as does the glorious gold clasp, which opens and closes nicely. The serpentine handle is in good shape with a small crease in one spot.

The mesh and the metal on this piece are in excellent condition. The inside black satin or silk lining has some spots, but no tears. It has an inside pocket as well.

It measures 5" wide at top of clasp, and 7" across the bottom. It has a 4-3/4" opening. Convo me with any questions or for more photos.

Since its founding in 1896, Whiting & Davis has continued to manufacture jewelry and accessories of the utmost quality and highest standard of design. They are known worldwide for their patented metal mesh handbags.
