This tiny purse is a true gem from the long line of Whiting and Davis mesh pieces.

+beautiful, almost pearly ivory mesh
+gold-tone frame
+twisted chain strap
+rich purple-blue lining
+kisslock closure
+signed inside metal frame
+sturdy and a bit heavy because of its size

Width of frame: just under 5 in. / 12.5 cm
Widest part: 6.5 in. / 16.5 cm
Height: 4.25 in. / just shy of 11 cm
Chain: 10 in. / 25.5 cm

Maker: Whiting and Davis
Material: metal mesh
Era: 1940s - 1950s
Condition: Excellent! This well-crafted piece has only a few flaws that show its age. There is a scuff on the outside of the frame, probably caused by the chain. There are also about 15 links that show very light wear straight down from the joint of the frame on one side. You have to look really really close to see these.
