Look for bags with minimal tarnish and little loss to the mesh or enamel. The hinge and clasp should work smoothly. Bags may be lined in silk, and chain lengths vary. Most are marked inside with the Whiting & Davis logo, often engraved on a cartouche secured to the mesh.

Store your bag in a cool, dry place and don’t wrap it in plastic (plastic can tarnish the metal over time).

Above all, don’t follow my example–pack your bag sparingly. The magic of mesh is in its fluid movement: Less really is more.
