Mesh Purses Facts & Tips


Exquisite Mandalian Figural Enameled Mesh Purse

<<<< Back to Mesh Enameled and Metal Purses


This is one gorgeous and exotic Mandalian enameled mesh handbag. I have long admired it but now I must share it with you.

The glossy sheen on the paint is radiant and shimmering.  The Birds of Paradise pattern is splendid, it's a captivating 1920's mesh purse.



This breathtaking theme is pure Art Nouveau and the color scheme is one of my favorite, multi blues and rich gold on a white ground, it is simply stunning.  I regret that my photos don't quite do this purse justice, the lustrous shine off the enamel made it difficult to focus, so you can expect it to look much crisper in person.  The enameled scene is the same on both, showing wee if any wear, in fact, I don't detect any loss of color.  The mesh is secure at all points, to the frame and at the hinges. This purse is unlined, I find no separations or weaknesses, just a nearly pristine work of art.


The silver tone frame has a nice angled cathedral shape along with a lovely embossed Art Nouveau floral design. It is relatively bright and clean with a signed Mandalian interior. The bottom of the purse is skirted with all it's original fringes and further enhanced with it's three tear drops at the fringe points.  The tear drops show the common and expected wear but that is the only sign of age on this purse. This enameled mesh handbag measures 8 in length by 3 across the frame and the chain handle hangs by 5 inches. This vintage Mandalian mesh purse is very impressive not only in appearance and theme but in condition as well. This one is very deserving of your consideration, the lover of blue will be most pleased.
