SPECTACULAR c.1920s enameled mesh bag by Whiting & Davis!!! Though not jewelry, these bags may as well be. They are rare, highly decorative, and extremely unique accessories! This particular bag by Whiting & Davis is from the early 1920s Art Deco Era. It is silver tone with pea green and brick red enameling on the clasp. The mesh itself, which is thin and lightweight yet extremely strong and durable, is decorated with a floral scene. When the mesh is spread out, it looks like a beautiful antique tapestry, except that it is done in metal! I have never seen this particular bag, and believe it to be a rare design.

The bag measures app. 6 3/4" x 4". The condition is practically mint, however one of the enamel tubes is missing on the chain (see pic 5). Other than that, the bag is in excellent antique condition.

Note: There appears to be two horizontal stripes going across the bag... this is a shadow that the camera picked up from the copper stand that the bag is displayed upon.
