Mesh Purses Facts & Tips


Art Deco Enameled Mesh Purse, ca. 1920

<<<< Back to Mesh Enameled and Metal Purses


This is a glossy and very fine vintage enameled mesh purse, ca. 1920's.

I find no maker's mark but certainly attribute this mesh handbag to the Whiting & Davis Company. 


The colors are bright and crisp, the green may be showing a bit too blue in my photos, please keep that in mind, the yellow is a nice mustard tone.  The design is strictly Art Deco and the condition is excellent, I find only one tile that has paint loss, on the side edge, not very noticeable.  The interior is lined with the original pale green silk, no holes or wear but has unstitched from the sides of the purse.


The eight point Van Dyke fringe is all intact and the purse is well attached at all areas, no gaps at the hinges.  This Deco mesh purse measures 6 tall by 4 1/2 in width, the chain drops 6 inches.  The enamel is very shiny and has a great feel to it, the silver tone frame is delicate with lineal etching.  Overall, it's a great little purse for your collection, nice perky colors.
