This Whiting and Davis Bag is adorable. The metal mesh really stands out against the reddish- brown handle.

Whiting and Davis has been supplying the fashion industry with metal mesh since 1876, and it is now the leading distributor. We think it is safe to say though, that no one does it quite like Whiting and Davis when it comes to metal mesh purses.

The body of the purse has a trapezoid shape, and the top of the bag is squared off with the (almost tortoise shell looking) plastic. The purse has one square handle with rounded corners. The metal mesh is coated with white enamel, and when compared to the typical silver or gold tone the white metal mesh it looks so unique! The Whiting and Davis label is totally intact, and can be found inside the bag. The purse has a light brown/ rose gold lining, and a small inside pocket. There is very minimal brass hardware on the purse.

The purses measurements are...
Bottom width: 11 in.
Top width: 9 1/2 in.
Length: 6 in.
Depth: 2 1/2 - 3 in.
Handle: 4 1/2 in. from top of purse

We are not 100% sure on the material of the handle... it might be bakelight, or some other early form of plastic.
