    A Sterling Silver Compact Related to the Broadway Play "You Can't Take It With You," 1937. Square-shaped, opens to reveal a mirror and space for pressed powder, hallmark on inside left rim reads "Sterling 2 0 Eartien," engraved on the top with the play's title above further text reading "Dec . 14-1936 -- Dec. 14-1937 / Sam H. Harris / George S. Kaufman / Moss Hart" -- the producer and two playwrights of the celebrated play that won the 1937 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and which has had countless revivals the last 76 years; evidently a one-year anniversary gift to an actress or other female associated with this now-historic theatrical production.
