"The company was founded when Charles W. Whiting went to work for a chain manufacturing company owned by Edward P. Davis. In 1907 Whiting was a partner of the company and the company manufactured silver, gold and metal mesh bags. In 1912, a machine-made lattice process was developed and Whiting and Davis bought the patent."

The bag is in very good condition apart from a small manufacturing error. One of the holes connecting the body of the bag to the frame is not punctured without removing anything to the strength of the bag (see photos).
