Gold mesh evening bag

Wonderful gold mesh evening bag either from the late 30's to early 40's. Belonged to an Aunt who lived in New Mexico and frequented many parties. Made by the Whiting & Davis CO. Lovely yellow linning in perfect shape. The bag has an interesting closure. It expans like a cuff bracelet then pinches together to close. Is in excellent condition. I have never cleaned it because I was affraid to do damage. Shows a little wear, but if I was that old and saw the things this purse might have seen I would show some kind of wear too!
Wonderful piece for the collector or someone who likes to look good!
7 1/2 x 5 without handle
11 inches with mesh handle

    This little bee house is so cute! I ordered it to add to a little bee/garden themed gift basket that I am putting together as a house warming gift for a friend, and it is the perfect addition! I know she will just love it and I hope she gets some bees living in it!
