The W&D clutch had definitely been well loved, though it still looks glorious it has tarnished some and is in need of a good cleaning.  The stitching has been worn away on the flap edges so the mesh is not anchored.  Other than that, there are no holes in the mesh or any visible missing links that I could see.  The lining was once an ivory color I believe but is heavily soiled.  It has pockets on both sides, one is a split pocket, probably to hold a small comb and a small mirror.  The other pocket has a cloth Whiting and Davis International insignia label.  The rhinestone clasp still works but it does have a few missing, the large center one, 2 of the baguettes, and several (8-12) of the small round ones.  With some tender loving care, this could be restored to it's former magnificence.
