The History of Whiting and Davis
Whiting and Davis originally opened as the Wade, Davis & Co in 1876. In 1880 Charles Whiting joined the company and worked his way up the company from errand boy to artisan to the New York sales rep in ten years. In 1892, Charles Whiting wove by hand the first Whiting & Davis handbag from gold metal mesh, creating one of the first “It” handbags. The company also created its second iconic design, the snake bracelet late in the 1890s. By 1896, Charles Whiting had partnered with company co-founder Edward Davis and the name Whiting & Davis was born. Throughout the 20th century, Whiting & Davis created highly sought-after metal mesh handbags, jewelry, and other accessories. The company is still in existence today using modern jewelry marks to differentiate new items from vintage pieces.
