This Whiting and Davis purse is made of beaded mail. It has a chain handle and an elegant wide tab closure --- lift the tab to open and depress the tab to close and secure. There are no breaks in the outer metal or tears to the inner lining.

There is one area of discoloration on one side of the metal, but I believe this would lean up. We leave those kinds of issues for the new owner since some want items in the condition in which we find them. I believe that a gentle cleaning with a brass or silver cleaning would at least alleviate this situation. The purse could be carried or displayed with little detriment from this discoloration.

The purse measures 5 inches deep and 5 inches wide at the bottom. It measures three inches across at the top.
