Vintage Hand Chased 950 Silver Lipstick Holder in Box

A European, probably Italian piece, and of higher silver purity (950/1000) than most lipstick holders on the market and also special because it comes in a presentation case. The holder has hand chased oak leaves on a finely inscribed matte background. The square tubular case has a heart-shaped slide catch which spring releases to produce a hinged case with a mirror and a lipstick tube. It is marked SILVER 950 and 36 on the inside tube.

There are remnants of the original red lipstick; it is now ready for its refill. The cartouche on the front for initials is not inscribed. All mechanical parts are sound and the silver has no dents or scratches. The black leatherette presentation box is hinged and lined with brown velvet.

Dimensions of the sterling case are: 11/16" x 9/16" and 2 1/4" long. The weight is 41 grams.
