1920s Whiting & Davis Mesh Purse

Regular price $68.00 Sale

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.

MEASUREMENTS:
(taken with garment lying flat; bust, waist & hips doubled for your convenience)
→frame: 3.75 inches
→opening: 3.25 inches long, 3.5 inches wide
→overall length: 4 inches + fringe
→chain strap: 10 inches

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.

COLOR: Silver

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.
