    Cute, unused 3.5" Whiting & Davis metal mesh coin purse. An ebay seller with same item marked 2684 lists it as 1930's-1946. Not very expensive, but sweet. Recent online research says this is NOT 1930's-46. Buyer Beware!

      Love it !! I am sure their is a time that you could still use this on a Special Evening? I always love old purses, they had such Class !!! Your collections are of love

      Thank you Rose - I think I will save this for a gift....ha ha ha...now that I realize it it's a W&D. Labels don't matter to me. I am like you, most interested in history. Thank you for loving my collections :-)

      Yes have to rescue things and give them their history and dignity back.

      So many lost treasures................and So little time.
    5. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Yes, I agree with you Rose!

      I love your purse, it's stunning Val! Purses like this makes the evening. You can dress in black and the purse will be your jewelry. Wonderful! In the book "Sacs a man" by Judith Miller there is another modell of their bag but same mech that they say is from 1940's. I'll email you a photo. /Elisabeth

      "Sacs a main" and nothing else :)

      Thank you Elisabeth. I didn't have internet for 24 hrs - gave you a break LOL. They finally fixed it. At first I was a little crazy over it. Then I remembered there is SO MUCH that doesn't involve the net, so I took photos, cleaned up my computer files, my apt (ha ha, not enough), wrote a letter....now I'm back!

      Oh, that is the gorgeous Whiting and Davis you were talking about! Love it!

      This is so cool! love it :)

      It's just a coin purse, but thank you! I am still looking for the mesh bra. It's just 2 triangles of mesh with chain ties LOL. The W&D halter was much more elaborate and is worth $$$. Is it okay to call you Marie, or would you rather Bijou?

      Thank you Sharone!
    12. bijoucaillouvintage bijoucaillouvintage, 4 years ago
      Can't wait to see the mesh bra, LOL ;-))
      Marie or Bijou, whichever you prefer is good! I kind of like that you guys call me Bijou, it's kind of cute and sweet ;-)) and I feel like I'm a member of the family.
    13. valentino97 valentino97, 4 years ago
      Hi Miss Bijou - I'll call you that. I know some members don't want their names used and other are okay with it. I'm still looking for an image of that bra. You can go on ebay to see the Whiting & Davis halter....I think the price is $800. Really???
    14. bijoucaillouvintage bijoucaillouvintage, 4 years ago
      Oh man the things you find on eBay with "Whiting and Davis mesh" ! :-o
      I think I found the assorted bra and it looks fab, LOL!

      Yes Bijou - there it is!!! LOL. I enjoyed the disco era, but I wasn't very sexy and I don't remember seeing anyone wearing the mesh triangle bra :-)

      Thank you Sean!

      It's not too late, Val, you know where to get it now! :-)))

      Buyer Beware Alert! I posted this on a collectors handbag site and boy they blasted it! No one will say why except "it's not from the 30's or 40's". The 2684 refers to the W&D frame part number, not a date.
