Exquisitely perfect signed Whiting & Davis silver mesh metallic clutch purse with hard-to-find rare art deco style rhinestone embellished clasp. Serial number on metal frame: 2024. Unusual scalloped frame with no scratches, scuffs or signs of wear. The chain mail mesh is in perfect condition and all attachment rings are in place on the frame. Satin inner lining appears never used. How gorgeous for a vintage wedding!

This Whiting and Davis bag is In magnificent condition except for several small brown spots on the otherwise pristine satin lining. This vintage purse appears never used. The metal stick that holds the hinge for clasp is sticking out about 1/8 inch (see photo) but only needs to be pushed back into place by a jeweler. The original Whiting and Davis tag sewn into the inside seam is intact.

References note that this style clasp and the scalloped clutch purse frame are likely from the 1930's. A true collector's piece and wonderful heirloom! The clasp includes two large geometric rhinestones with two round rhinestones set next to them, plus numerous pave rhinestones around the design.
