Since its founding in 1896, Whiting & Davis has continued to manufacture jewelry and accessories of the utmost quality and highest standard of design.
This divine evening bag is a dazzling example of the company's lasting contribution to the wide and wonderful world of fashion.
This bag's body is made entirely from gorgeous goldtone metal mesh attached with fine wire to a rigid goldtone frame.
The little purse has the prettiest rhinestone clasp closure.
The smooth, shiny frame is held securely shut with an elegant rhinestone encrusted clasp.
You will find a Whiting & Davis logo stamped on both sides of the interior of the frame.
A small length of luxurious snake chain makes a perfect strap, ideal for hand or elbow carrying.
The interior of the bag is lined with divine salmon-colored sateen and even features a tiny pocket ideal for cards and cash.
Best of all, you will find a tiny matching coin purse inside which is made of the same glorious gold-tone mesh.
The coin purse is lined with light, dark-beige vinyl which features several screen-printed Whiting & Davis logos. A small, white tag inside reads "Made in U.S.A."
Just running your fingers over a mesh Whiting & Davis handbag is a sensual, tactile experience.
The hand bag shows only the slightest wear and one or two teeny-tiny flea-bite scratches.
Otherwise, both the evening bag and coin purse remain in excellent vintage condition.
This beauty will make any outfit instantly elegant.
