Antique wire mesh purse - a Whiting & Davis creation from the 1920s! Clasp is beautiful - see pictures! The very stately art deco style frame has a layered diamond-shape pattern. The gold plating is in very good condition, as is the wire mesh of the purse.

I have seen purses similar to this one sell for more than $400, especially in this style with the fringe, so this is a great chance to buy this treasure at a good price, well below value!

Original lining is slightly damaged but intact and still very beautiful. There are a few small rips in the LINING from age, and a few soiled areas but the center divider is present (see pics).

Here is a great article about these purses: http://antiques.about.com/od/ladiesaccessories/a/Whiting-And-Davis090311.htm

Measurements: length- 6 1/2 -does not include the strap
Width- 4 1/8th at frame
Width at the bottom- 7 inches
The ornate strap measures almost 12 inches long.

I am still in awe just thinking about who this originally belonged to... I love it!

This item is on SALE - the original price was $275 - it is now more than $175 off the original price!
