Gorgeous enamel handbag / small purse by Whiting & Davis in the original box!
This purse was part of the "Beadlite" line of enameled mesh bags, and I have found mentions of this style in newspapers from 1929 and 1930. I've included some images of newspaper clippings from 1929 and 1930 in the listing photos.
This fabulous black and orange motif is perfect for fall and Halloween! The abstract design reminds me of a bear :)
It has a silver tone enameled frame and kiss clasp with silver tone chain.
