Whiting

 

$175.00


For sale is a vintage evening bag or purse made by the Whiting & Davis Company of Plainville, Massachusetts. It is made in the ever popular gold tone mesh and is a very nice example of their work. The purse measures approximately 7" tall and 7" wide for the bag part of the purse. The overall height with fringe and handle is approximately 14 1/4".

The purse has a metal mesh armor exterior and a peach satin liner. The purse is a nice sized evening bag adorned with flapper style fringe made of the mesh armor links conjoined in rows of two. It creates a very fluid and striking accent along with an applied rhinestone accented frame. The rhinestone adornment is done to simulate a vine across the top exterior front of the frame. The bag has a rope style handle to complete the look for that special occasion or a fashionable evening out. There is a pocket on the interior for holding smaller items. If you search the fashion world, you can see Hollywood stars such as Nicole Kidman and Paris Hilton accessorizing with Whiting and Davis purses. It has a kiss clasp closure that is in fine working order and closes securely.

The purse is considered to be in excellent condition as there are no tears in the linings and no unpleasant odors. The metal armor mesh is all in fine condition and the frame and hinge are undamaged as well. The armor mesh is in such fine shape and is highly reflective and actually picks up some of its color from the clothes you are wearing. There are no scratches to the frame as if it were never used. This lovely purse even has its original box to protect it when storing it for your next event where you want to dazzle your friends. The box measures 8 1/8" wide, 7 5/8" high and approximately 1 3/4" thick when closed.

The purse is signed on the frame with the "WHITING AND DAVIS MESH BAGS" logo on one side of the inside frame along with "MADE IN U.S.A." . There is also the number "2982" on both halves of the hinged frame.

This purse was made circa 1920's.
