WHITING DAVIS Dresden enamel baby mesh purse with pink silk lining and a small round mirror

WHITING DAVIS Dresden enamel baby mesh purse with pink silk lining, including a pocket, and a small round mirror, gold colored metal frame and chain handle, circa 1930. The gold, crimson and black colors are accented with blue. The purse has a 7-1/2" by 5" body, and the lining is in good condition with only about a 1/3" piece of lining open at one corner.

The frame and body are in excellent condition. The frame has a trailing leaves motif, very classic.

A similar purse is in the 1932 Denver Jeweler's Buying Guide catalogue.

While mesh bags were hand made in the 1800's, the invention of the mesh making machine in 1909 made them more readily available.

There are many types of mesh, some of which are: ring mesh; Dresden mesh; baby mesh; fish scale mesh; and enameled mesh. ViewViewView
