    When I stumbled upon this in a drawer in my Great Aunt's attic in Detroit, I was literally breathless! It is a mesh purse commemorating the 1933/34 World's fair that I BELIEVE is made by Whiting and Davis. The only other that I have found was a red version sold at auction last year. The red version was valued between $1000-2000 and it was just sitting in a drawer, untouched for YEARS in an attic. I need help making sure that it is legit and a value for it. It is so beautiful and I am so proud to have found it! I am trying to figure out a way to display this but am just not sure how to at this point. Hope you enjoy this unique item as much as I do!

      Thank you so much, Joanne! I actually sold it to a fellow about a month ago for $300- looks like he did his research too!
