Exquisite Whiting & Davis Beadite and Rhinestone Structured Bottom Evening Bag
This is it ladies, with its under-stated elegance that will make jaws drop. this is the only evening bag you will ever need! Trust me, I saw the reaction on my friend's faces when they saw this incredible bag!
The purse was made by Whiting & Davis, a company with a long history of quality craftsmanship both in purses and jewelry. This bag features a beadite exterior which is black enamel over goldtone metal. This creates a shimmering effect as the gold filters through the black enamel.
The bag has a classy A-line shape with a wonderful, structured bottom, black enamel metal rope chain, goldtone metal double kiss clasp and an incredible goldtone metal frame with dazzling rhinestones set in open metalwork. Whiting and Davis began in the jewelry business and this is evident in the craftsmanship you see here,
The interior is lined in peach satin and it is spotless, There is one interior pocket and a fabric Whiting and Davis label. These Whiting and Davis beadite bags are extremely hard to find and this one is in absolutely pristine condition with the mesh intact, all rhinestones present, a shiny frame showing virtually no wear and a pristine interior to match. It measures 9" L X 7 1/2" H, The chain handle has a 6 1/2" vertical drop.
This would make a wonderful signature bag that could be passed down and enjoyed for years to come. These classic Whiting and Davis bags truly stand the test of time.
The fabulous matching beadite wallet shown with the purse in the last photo is not included but may be purchased separately from my shop.
