Please be aware Black Cat Clothiers is operating out of Philadelphia, PA which is currently impacted by COVID-19. Due to this, I will be shipping less frequently to minimize my exposure at the post office. All orders will be sent instructions for how to safely handle your package when it arrives, as COVID-19 may live on cardboard for up to 24 hours. Current processing time is 2-5 business days. Be safe and thank you for understanding.
The quintessential and oh so classic 1920s Whiting & Davis silver mesh purse featuring a floral filigree frame, wide chain strap and medieval-inspired chainmail-like fringe at the bottom. The perfect pair to your 20s evening gown or a modern statement on its own! This piece really has that dense, fluid mesh we so admire in W&D pieces. Clasp closure, unlined.
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with a few small breaks in the chain where it is pulling away from the handle corners; very normal and is not impacting the overall look or usage currently, though I would advise against carrying heavy items in this beauty. There is a light patina on this piece I have not tried to remove -- I am a sucker for patina'd silver, though it could certainly be gently polished if you so desire. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.
MORE INFORMATION: By Whiting & Davis. Made in America. Metal. Wipe clean with a lightly damp cloth when necessary.
PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments that fits you well. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
