Vintage and very glamorous golden mesh Whiting & Davis Company handbag purse
This is a gorgeous designer vintage handbag from the 1930s or 1940s. Shiny gold tone mesh on a gold frame. So art deco. It is made from metal and gold mesh. Has a gold tone stamped link chain handle. Lined in gold faille fabric with matching fabric pocket. Kiss lock closing. A fabulous collectible. Very well made American bag. Marked 'Made in the USA' 'Whiting & Davis bags' '2853' inside on the frame.
