This classic Whiting & Davis gold mesh evening bag dates from approximately the late 1930s to the late 1940s. The diminutive handbag has a gold metal frame, fastened with a kiss clasp. The gold mesh “spiders” of the bag are suspended from the solid metal frame by tiny loops of wire--the typical Whiting and Davis construction. The strap is a fine gold chain. Inside, the bag is lined with gold faille fabric, and the frame is stamped with the Whiting & Davis logo. In very good condition, the bag has a small tarnished spot on the top of the frame, and one tiny scuff on the frame’s finish, next to the clasp. This gold mesh evening purse will look great paired with your favorite cocktail or evening attire!
