    A vintage '60s silver tone Whiting and Davis oval intaglio glass cameo ring. Filigree setting is approximately 1 inch x 7/8 inches and the glass is 6/8 inch x 4/8 inch.
    A short extract from their history: The story began in 1876 when three men - William H. Wade, Edward P. Davis and Louis Heckman - shook hands and founded a silversmith company known at the time as Wade, Davis & Co. They opened doors in August of that year and debuted with a collection of sterling silver jewelry and popular designs of the Late Victorian era, including stickpins, bracelets, earrings and bar pins.

    In 1880, an office and errand boy by the name of Charles A. Whiting was hired for 9 cents an hour. Within a short ten-year span, he progressed through the ranks, serving as artisan, salesman foreman, and by 1890 was serving as the company representative for the New York office.

    In 1892, Charles Whiting wove by hand the first Whiting & Davis handbag, transforming the ancient art of chainmail into an exquisite fabric. The small purse was crafted in plated ring mesh, roughly three inches square and featured a delicate twist closure and a simple leaf motif on the frame.

      Hope the above is a live link.

      So nice ring! I have always been facinated by their purses, thank you for posting the cameo and the link :-)

      o ring and the link :-)
    4. Gillian, 5 years ago
      I'd never seen anything like there metal purses before - but very popular. Thanks Kyra for you kind post.

      Hi there! :-)

      Here is the "Auntie-Baba" cavern:
    6. Gillian, 5 years ago
      OMG - are they all fixed up before they reach there? Some nerve. The costs are outrageous.
    7. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      Did I say I love this ring? I think costume jewelry was so much better in those days.
    8. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Gilian, I've not seen all of her stuff, but lot were shown here and barely got nothing positive in her dating or description, surely because such a stubborn can't even believe she's wrong with antique and rare :-/
    9. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Bonnie, you're so right about costume jewellery being better then!
    10. Gillian, 5 years ago
      Thank you kyratango. In future all my posts will be written in code. Seems Baba gets away with all kinds of chicanery, and if we stand up to it, poof it's gone. So have you been to any good flea markets lately? Have you done any kyratising lately?
    11. Gillian, 5 years ago
      And where did the Efesgirl one disappear to?
    12. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      Bonnie must be treasure hunting, will come back with a great harvest to share, hopefully!

      Baba considers it's me who prevents helping
      :-D, so I was called cockroach, full of venom, troll and lately ugly woman, lol.

      Never seen such "non willing to learn" person... All your attempts are wasted time and won't convince her the piece isn't deco or antique or rare as the saying tells, you can lead the horse to the water but can't force him to drink :-)
    13. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      I was indeed treasure hunting today - and found some! Will be posting shortly....
    14. kyratango kyratango, 5 years ago
      No flea market for me, now my hunting scene is the net :-)
      Kyratisations are posted when I have some, but difficult to find something interesting and cheap!
      Thanks Gillian for asking :-D
