Early 1900's WHS Co Coin Or Change Purse Antique Silver Plated Compact Dance Purse
This is an early 1900's WHS Company silver plated dance compact purse and card case with a wristlet chain.
This case has two spring loaded coin holders for dimes and nickels and a place for a mirror, which is missing, but it could easily be replaced. Behind where the mirror would go is a place for powder or other items
The other side has a spring loaded clip for holding cigarettes, money, business cards, etc. This case measures 3 3/4 inches in length without the chain handle, the chain adds another 6 inches to the overall length.
It is engraved with the initials "DEA" on the front, so if you work for the D.E.A., or know someone that does, this might be the case for you. The inside of the case is hallmarked WHS Co and silver plate.
The outside of the case has a few dents, especially to the back, and shows some slight wear, but is in overall good condition.
