Antique Geometric Art Nouveau Whiting and Davis signed enamel mesh purse wristlet
Amazing piece of history. Highly detailed turn of the century mesh purse. Hang tag on the inside signed Mesh Whiting and Davis bags Reg USA & CAN. Patina matches that of the framework. Frame is embellished with small flowers and sweeping cartouches. There are plates on either side of the clasp but they have not been engraved as commonly seen in this era of purses. Twisted chain links make up a small wristlet handle. Geometric mesh pattern is in warm tones of yellow, coral and light blue. Bottom of the purse has small triangle flares. Good vintage condition with small signs of wear. Clasp and frame are fully attached to the mesh and in good working order.
Purse measures 4 inches tall and 2 and 1/2 inches wide.
