Whiting and Davis White Metal Mesh “Beggar’s” Purse. From the 1930’s. If you go to the Whiting and Davis website, you will see a photo of Lady Gaga carrying one of these vintage bags. The gate top of this unusual piece flips up, allowing the accordion mouth to stretch open.
The purse is 5¾ inches (15 cm) from the top of the gate closing to the bottom of the mesh covering and 5 inches (13 cm) wide at the bottom. There is a 9-inch (23 cm) drop from the top of the linked metal strap to the bottom of the purse.
The bag is in good used condition, with some wear to the chain and the accordion closure. There are no missing pieces of the white enameled metal.
