Product Description
Perfect for a Gatsby party, this 1920's era Whiting Davis gold mesh purse takes you to an era of flash and fun. The patterned mesh with sawtooth pattern bottom, all in very good condition, is the epitome of the flapper era.

The chain strap is in excellent condition, the metal closure shows its beautiful Art Deco style pattern. There is a scroll pattern in the mesh with very little wear and tear.The sawtooth edging on the bottom gives a great dimension to the bag. The silk liner is where the wear and tear is, obviously used for a great evening or two.

The handbag measures approximately 6 1/2 inches long by 5 inches wide.
More Info
"The New Woman of the 1920s boldly asserted her right to dance, drink, smoke, and date--to work her own property, to live free of the strictures that governed her mother's generation. (...) She flouted Victorian-era conventions and scandalized her parents. In many ways, she controlled her own destiny."
- Joshua Zeitz, Flapper: A Madcap Story of Sex, Style, Celebrity, and the Women Who Made America Modern
