    Hard to get perspective on size but the chain looks like a brass pocket watch chain to me? Could be a small ladies watch case, once again hard to judge completely from the picture but the chain appears sturdy I would assume a makeup compact would be a more elegant chain?, I’ve found pocket watches with the same style chain almost to the T, just a guess thought cool find either way congrats on a cool find

    I don't see any provision for a winder unless it was keyed from the face. Could it be a snuff or pill box? Please post a picture of it with something we know the size of?

    I wonder if it's a locket that held photos? Just a thought.

    What does the back of it look like?

    Back is blank and there are no makers markings anywhere. The crown may be a British Queen's or King's crown.

    Looks like the heart shaped item is part of a old fishing lure set up.
