Mesh Purses Facts & Tips


Exciting Mandalian Enamel Mesh Purse

<<<< Back to Mesh Enameled and Metal Purses


This is one gorgeous Mandalian mesh purse from the early 1900's and I am thrilled to offer it to you today, it's fabulous and in great condition as well.

The color scheme is so dynamic, bold and deep in tones, all that the collector would desire in a quality and unique Mandalian enameled mesh purse.



My photos show you exactly what you can expect, deep maroon (almost ruby), yellowy orange, bright hot pink and black, all on a soft white background.  The pattern is fantastic, an abstract dual parrot design that is very appealing and identical on both sides. My photos are very good and do not exaggerate the depth of colors.  The enameling has a glossy sheen, it is in excellent condition with little if any paint loss, I don't see any losses to speak of.  The purse is secure to the frame at all points and the bottom is finished with a full complete row of tiny mesh chain link fringes, all having a bronzy brassy tone.


The brass frame is stunning with it's sculpted arched shape.  The embossed design exemplifies the Art Nouveau era and the clasp works as it should.   The interior is signed Mandalian on the inside of the frame. This bag is unlined, there are no gaps in the mesh at the hinges or anywhere else, no problems whatsoever on this purse, it's a fabulous investment piece.  This exceptional Mandalian enameled mesh purse measures 8 inches in overall length by 3 inches across the frame and the chain handle drops 5 inches.  When you see this purse, you will love it as I do, it's magnificent, the paint is quite dramatic. I haven't seen this parrot pattern in these colors before, it's stunning.
