A sterling silver dance purse with a patent date of 1924, including a mirror, lipstick holder and compartments for rouge and powder. It is marked W&H Co. inside a heart (Wightman and Hough of Providence, RI).
Approximately 3 1/8" x 2 1/8"; 10 1/4" chain length.
Excellent condition with minor surface scratches and tarnish. The mirror has a little discoloration and finish loss.
A note about polishing - As collectors of vintage and antique items often value the time imparted patina on metal surfaces, I will leave it to you to decide its appearance. I may lightly polish an area of a piece if tarnish conceals metal purity or makers' marks.
