Art Deco STERLING SILVER Compact - Cigarette Holder, Compact, Memo Holder, Webster Co
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1920 or so
ITEM: Made by the Webster Co., here's a small silver container for which function I know not. It could be a memo holder, but the paper is missing. It could be a cigarette case, but it's kinda small for ciggies. It could be a compact, but there's no pad or pencil. It certainly could hold a few bills or some tiny mini necessities but that's about it. Lovely hand hammered front with a cartouche to add a monogram. Back is plain. Push button open mechanism at the top.
CONDITION: Very nice though there is a shallow indent at the back near the edge - hard to see in my photo as, if you look straight on, nothing appears amiss. A jeweler might be able to tap out so that the area is once again flat.
METAL CONTENT: Sterling Silver
HALLMARKS: STERLING along with the Webster hallmark - a W over a large C then a small "o".
SIZE: When closed, 2-1/2" x 1-3/4"; depth is about 5/16".
WEIGHT: 29.8 grams
FINAL COMMENTS: Priced accordingly with the beauty mark in mind.
