Elegant antique to vintage American hallmarked sterling silver evening bag or purse style compact with original beveled mirror, celluloid note or dance card insert behind and two lidded compartments in front! Enough room to tuck a few bills or credit cards in under the mirror and you're ready to go, no need to carry a burdensome bag out on the town and what a lovely flash of style from the past. I've tried looking up the silversmith mark but, being more knowledgeable in French silver, haven't had much luck but the piece likely dates to the roaring 20s. Thick & heavy sterling silver with a large interlaced monogram on the front. Wonderful.

Very good condition. A faint dimple or two visible but no large dents or damage. There is a slight bend to the front left corner of the inner compartment's lid but they all close just fine and the original beveled mirror is intact. See pictures for measurements.
