Cat and Fish Brass Coin or Jewelry tray

I’m not sure what this is. This sat in one of the offices at school and the staff knew I collected kitsch, so they pleaded me with me to take this home. I did in a minute but I am not sure what it was exactly used for. I do love it tho…..

    I love having little plates and bowls to hold things in so my desk and shelves stay somewhat orderly. This could have been used as a catch-all for anything. I’d probably pop paperclips or saftey pins, something flat and that came in multiples, into it.

    This looks pretty old. I’d guess 1920s?
