  2. Mesh bags like yours from the art deco period are highly collectible. I suggest you go the the eBay completed auctions section to see how much others like yours are selling for.
     
  3. Are you selling or looking to buy? That one looks like an older style. Try eBay or Zappos.com carries that brand.
     
  4. Unless that is a reproduction, that bag was made in the 1920s or 30s. Whiting and Davis bags from that period, especially those with enameling (yours is enameled) are collectors items. Here are some completed eBay auctions for comparison:

  5. I sold a Whiting & Davis Chain Mesh bag similar to yours a couple years ago on Ebay. It was from my Mother in Laws estate and dated in the 20's. Alot of my enamel was gone and a few chains of mesh were gone and it still fetched around 150.
