For sale is a vintage purse made by the Whiting & Davis Company of Plainville, Massachusetts. It is made in an enameled white or cream mesh and is a very nice example of their work. The purse measures approximately 5" tall and 6 1/2" wide at the base. The hinged frame is 4 1/2" wide and has a 5 1/2" handle.

The purse has a metal mesh armor exterior and an ivory raw silk liner. The purse is very functional as there is a good size compartment for necessities with a hinged rhinestone adornment that locks the purse closed once the purse is snapped shut. It can only be snapped shut by having this rhinestone tab partially closed. The lining has Whiting and Davis in cursive that is part of the design of the silk. It has a lovely rope handle to finish the look. This bag would be a lovely accessory for any special occasion.

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 Purse is signed on the lining and has a yellow satin label sewn onto the inside pocket that reads "MESH WHITING & DAVIS BAGS TRADE MARK REG. MADE IN U.S.A." in black lettering.

This purse was made circa 1960's.
