This is a lovely and charming little case with mirror that features an egret in a marsh with plants and trees. It appears to be sterling over brass metal. There appears to be no markings, none that I can see anyway.
I think it was originally used for rouge or powder. There is a mirror on one side and the brass colored rectangular area on the other and it is empty now. The inside measurement is 2.5 x 3 inches if you want to think about putting another powder or rouge inside.
The overall measurements 2-7/8 inches wide by almost 3-1/2 inches wide. There is a press button to open the box and it works great. The box closes with a crisp clicking sound. This is an old item, possibly around the early part of the 20th century, so it has a used feel to it although no large dents or problems. There are scratches and tiny dings on the back and front. The inside brass area is not pristine and the mirror has a dark blotch on the bottom and scratches.
Thank you for looking!
