Vintage Whiting & Davis Enameled Mesh Purse

Colorful Dresden Silk Screen Fine Baby Mesh Bag

Custom Search

This wonderful Whiting & Davis Dresden mesh purse is enameled in a fabulous silk screen design.  The colors are rich and show very well in my photos. The hot pink really pops off the mesh, the green, blue and brown tones compliment it beautifully.  The same pattern repeats on both sides and the condition is clearly very fine indeed..... structurally excellent. The colors are strong, I find no losses or fading to the enameling.



The size of the mesh links is very fine and commonly referred to as Baby mesh. All of the mesh is in excellent shape, well attached at all points as it should be.  The purse has a rich golden tone frame, signed on the interior and an extra sturdy chain handle.  The shape and design of the frame pulls together both the Art Nouveau and Deco eras with raised curly detailing recessed within the lines of the frame.  The bottom of the purse is finishes in a wonderful pointed fringe, like the Van Dyke style.  Everything about the mesh looks great, I couldn't be happier with the condition.


The interior maintains it's original silk lining, gathered pocket and beveled mirror, although the lining does appear to be thinning a bit and someone took a few stitches down further inside the lining, trying to keep it in service.  The lining is secure, reasonably clean and well attached, it's nice to still have it in place.  This Whiting & Davis baby mesh Dresden bag measures 7 in length by 4 wide and the handle drops over 5 inches.  This is a stunning example of a Dresden mesh purse, Whiting & Davis really knew how to decorate these beautifully.  It will make a super addition to your collection or wardrobe accessories.
