This is a sweet compact or pill or trinket box by Watrous, in sterling silver, with a mirror inside and made to also function as a chatelaine-type object with a loop so that it can be attached to a chain. Circa 1920s, in an Art Deco style, this piece has a monogram on the top. The interior is nicely machined with a circular design and is gold washed. The box closes and holds very well and there is a mirror inside. Sweet!
Watrous began business in 1896 in Connecticut, ultimately becoming a division of International.
