A pretty silver ( 800 standard ) art nouveau , French , we believe, lipstick holder, 1900c. This was probably part of a French lady's chatelaine set. Not stamped but tested positively for silver. I do believe that it was embossed with a stamp ( on the silver loop that holds the silver ring for attachment to a chain but one cannot decipher it at all ). Decorated with the typical beautiful art nouveau scroll work of its day. As stated, a pretty and collectible piece.
Size : 6 cm. ( 2 23/64" ) tall with a diameter of 1.5 cm. ( 0 19/32" ).
Weight : 12g. ( 0.42 ounces ).
Condition : very good - note , there are still some traces of lipstick inside the piece.
