This vintage bag, being one of only four styles of the LIMITED EDITION STAR SERIES/HOLLYWOOD PORTRAIT Purses by the iconic handbag designers WHITING & DAVIS were only manufactured for a short time in celebration of the Whiting & Davis Centennial celebration. Only one owner, my Mom... She was a hip mommy lol... The bag is made up of authentic enameled armor metal mesh. The portrait of Clark Gable in vibrant flesh tones on the front and a solid blue Azure blue back.
The Whiting and Davis' logo is clearly stamped on the inside of the gold plated frame below the kiss closure clasp accompanied with " Made in the USA " stamped along the inside of frame. It measures 6 x 3.75 with a very durable and flexible braided gold tone carry chain measuring 14 inches. Unfortunately we don't have the box anymore. That was smart because it did not ruin the material. (One tiny pin hole size hole on inside fabric as if label was tacked on) No effect on use.IT HAS ONLY BEEN STORED IN SATIN or SILK. Never moved or scraped against anything and treated with kit gloves all these years.
