Vintage Whiting & Davis Silver Metal Mesh Evening Bag

Product Code: Whiting & Davis Silver Mesh Crossbody
Availability: 1

This is a fabulous original, vintage Whiting & Davis silver coloured, metal mesh crossbody or shoulder bag, ideal for an evening wedding party and certainly a bag to keep and use again for nights out and parties! Whiting & Davis were established in 1876 and are the world's leading designers of metal mesh and chain link handbags right up to the present day. Whiting & Davis bags both new and vintage, can often be spotted at red carpet events, being carried by celebrities and Hollywood stars and there are collectors who specialise in antique and vintage examples too.

  • This Whiting & Davis crossbody or shoulder bag probably dates to the 1970's or at the latest 1980's. Whilst it appears unused, there is some age related wear to the metal coating which helps to date the bag to these periods as well as the style, but that is an approximate date 
  • The whole external bag features the iconic metal mesh in a bright, shiny silver colour which is very tactile, soft and flexible
  • The front flap lifts over the top of the bag to reveal the inside compartment which is lined in a beautiful silver grey satin fabric. There is also a structured open pocket which also features the all important Whiting & Davis label
  • The front flap fastens securely with an oval press stud
  • The handle is a long, heavy, shiny, faceted chain in a silver coloured metal
  • Incredibly this bag still has its original outer plastic packaging although sadly not the dust bag
  • The condition of this bag is excellent. If it has been used, it must have only been carried for show because the inside appears never to have been used at all. There is some very slight loss of coating or tarnishing to occasional links in the mesh which does not impact on the overall effect. There is one tiny rust spot on the actual press stud of the fastening closure. The chain is immaculate as are the leather loops at the side which hold the links in place
  • From top to bottom the bag measures 8.75ins and 7.5ins from side to side. The chain handle is 32.5ins long enabling the bag to be worn across body in true 1980's disco fashion or to hang from the shoulder

If you like some bling and sparkle or you want to create a glamorous disco diva look, then this collectable, designer vintage bag could be for you
