Label: Whiting & Davis Co. Mesh Bags, Made in the U.S.A.

Whiting & Davis metal mesh bags are a marvel of purse engineering, in my opinion! This silver metal mesh 1950s clutch version has a rhinestone-trimmed hinged clasp that fastens the scalloped, silver metal frame. The frame is attached to the tiny mesh links with a continuous spiral of wire from one end to the other, a Whiting and Davis innovation. This slinky silver mesh evening bag will look great with your favorite cocktail or formal attire! The clutch bag is in very good to excellent condition, with its only issue being some light soiling to the ivory taffeta lining fabric from normal use. The circa 1930s-1950s Whiting and Davis fabric label is present in the lining of the bag, and their hallmark is also stamped on the inside of the frame.
