Today I post here on CW my 200th jewel/"ornament" so I want to show you something special.Although you can call this lipstick case/holder not really a jewel still like him. Because it is a unique antique Victorian/Edwardian utensil sure many ladies will be interested.
As already said, this is a lipstick created and halmarked as silver (900) with makersmark: JB.
By the time the lipstick itself is no longer present but the colour remains show that it must have been a beautiful rose red color.
Given my job, I have made a lot of study of the history of the makupduring centuries and that says to me that this piece should be made anyway in the latter part of the 19th early 20th century. Because there in the 19th century by neat ladies hardly makeup was used.
As you can see it is a very beautiful engraved lipstick case holder and the original brush is there even more.
Do you have another opinion than I described? Please let me know!
