Vintage Flashback- Whiting & Davis Vienna Bag! This isn’t something that most people think about, but Whiting & Davis has been making handbags since 1876. Wow, can you imagine that there could be pieces from this company over 100 years old still floating around out there? Talk about antique! Interestingly, Whiting & Davis handbags have not changed much in that time. Sure, silhouettes likely changed, but one thing always remained the same. Yep, that would be what this designer is famous for — metal mesh. Most styles are just one solid color, but the piece you see pictured here is different. Meet the Whiting & Davis Vienna Bag!
When I look at the Whiting & Davis Vienna, it reminds me of a tapestry. I know, it sounds strange considering this is a metal mesh piece. But the pattern printed onto the metal mesh features blocks of color and branching swirls, which gives it that tapestry-like look. The dainty chain fringe along the bottom also contributes to this look and the circle handle adds a more vintage feel. When I first saw this bag, I wasn’t really sold on it. But after seeing the modeling picture, it has grown on me. I think with the right outfit, it could look quite elegant.
