Whiting & Davis Antique Bag

It is rare for us to offer an early 20th century antique bag, but we couldn't pass this one up. Found at an estate sale of a doctor's elderly widow, this is a stellar example of Whiting & Davis quality and charm.
This bag measures 6-1/2" high x 3-1/2" wide. The chain has about a 6" drop. Amazingly, this bag still has both the original Whiting & Davis hang tag and guarantee card which identifies it as an "Armor Mesh Bag." In addition, there is a metal Whiting & Davis tag attached inside the bag. The background color on the mesh is pale pink. Please see all our photos of this great find.
This bag is in stellar condition with absolutley no paint wear on the mesh whatsoever. The original chain is in perfect condition. The metal frame has scratching and finish wear along all the edges and a gold spot on one of the clasp balls (as seen in close up photo below.) There are no missing, bent, or otherwise damaged mesh links.
Due to the somewhat insignificant scratching throughout the frame edges, this lovely antique bag is being discounted to a very enticing price.
