Art Deco Whiting Davis Evening Handbag Change Purse | Old Luxe

Whiting and Davis are known for making the epitome of the mesh bag. They started in the late 1800’s. The bag and change purse up for offer today is from the 1930 or 1940s. The bag has a delicate link chain wrist strap, which measures approximately 12 inches from end to end. The bag measures 8 inches at its widest points and is 6 inches long. The bag is lined in clean peach satiny material in good condition however on one side of the lining you will see a straight line stain – can’t identify what would of caused the discoloration – I can only speculate that the change purse may have caused this stain. The frame is beautifully crafted with an art-deco “sun-rise” motif stamped into the frame itself. On both sides of the frame is a stamped cartouche’ which reads, "Mesh, Whiting and Davis Co, Bags". Outside the cartouche’ is stamped "Made In U.S.A” and number “207”. There is also a label sewn into the lining, which reads "Mesh, Whiting and Davis Co. Bags, Trade Mark Reg., Made in U.S.A." The inside of the frames is in good, vintage condition.

The change purse in matching armour metal mesh is in excellent condition. The diminutive change purse measures 3 ¾ inches wide and 3 inches long. The change purse is lined in a black satiny material in excellent condition. The change purse is framed on three sides giving the purse a very clean look.

This Bag and Change Purse - like all Whiting and Davis mesh bags - is the epitome of shimmery splendor.
