Whiting & Davis Beggars Bag
This is one of many fine Whiting and Davis's gorgeous lines of purses. I believe this is an antique Whiting and Davis Gate-top Beggar’s Bag or Dance Bag with silver mesh with an expandable accordion opening with nice pink silk or satin lining. This is in wonderful condition on the inside and out. This has the original whiting and davis white tag on the inside as well. It has a cute filigree tassel hanging from the bottom too that is a great accent to it. There are no issues with this bag and it is in very nice vintage condition. It does have minor silver loss and tarnishing. The part that holds the tassel on the bottom also may be missing some dangle chains as iys a claw shape and many claws are empty. I just don't know the original year it was made.
