Charles W. Whiting, in 1907, became a partner and owner of the Wade & Davis Company, a chain manufacturing company founded by William Wade and Edward P. Davis in 1876, located in Attleboro, MA, after having worked for the firm since 1880. Along with Davis as partner, the name changed to the Whiting and Davis Company. The company, mainly as a silver manufacturer, originally made silver plated and gold plated mesh chains and purses that were completed by hand in 1892. They then started making fashion accessories to complement their product lines. They introduced a jewelry line in sterling silver or silver or gold plated metalwork as the foundation of their mesh works. The Whiting & Davis Co. introduced applied transfer porcelain jewelry and cameos along with a line of iridescent glass jewelry. The company produced many original designs along with reproducing reproductions of antique jewelry that were copies of museum pieces in the 1950s. They stopped making non-mesh jewelry in 1980 and stopped making mesh jewelry in 1991. Whiting & Davis today still produces mesh purses and accessories along with distinctive jewelry things. Mark: "WHITING & DAVIS CHAIN CO.", first used in 1926, "W & D", "WHITING & DAVIS CO.", in the metal and sometimes in a cartouche
