A LITTLE HISTORY OF METAL MESH BAGS...Metal mesh bags were hand made by skilled gold and silversmiths as early as the 1820's. In 1909, the mesh making machine was invented by A.C. Pratt of Newark, New Jersey. By 1912, mesh handbags had become extremely popular and in demand.
By the 1920's mesh bags were offered in a large spectrum of colors and fashionable designs, including enameled, Dresden and pearlized enamel finishes. Fabulous enameled flat mesh purses, known as armored mesh, were offered in varied colors and a constant parade of unusual patterns. Most of the bags made from 1929 to 1932 were patterned by silk screening where the baby ring mesh took on a soft, hazy, romantic appearance much like a blurred water color. This technique was done by hand over several days by applying one color at a time and allowing 24 hours of drying between colors.
