Founded in Massachusetts in 1876, the Whiting and Davis Company became known for its fine evening bags, wiped out of gold and silver threads. In 1907, the company began to produce a line of costume jewelry made of silver and gold and silver-plated metals. Costume jewelery includes necklaces, bracelets and earrings, many of which demonstrate the influence of the style of Art Deco and Art Nouveau. Inspired by Egyptian jewelry designs, as well as the Victorian era motifs, Whiting and Davis produced stunning large bracelets, necklaces and brooches with floral engraving and reliefs. Notable are golden and silver mesh necklaces in the shape of ties, and of course, considered highly valuable among collectors – spiral bracelets in the form snakes.
