Lipstick Holder OPENS to Mirror
Antique Silver Vermeil/Charms
The center panel of extraordinary antique (c. 1935) lipstick holder was artistically hand-enameled with a scene of the goddess Diana. And the entire case is decorated with a fine faux-malachite-stone pattern. This process was extremely time consuming and hand-enameled by a talented artist.
In mythology Diane represents the goddess of the hunt and
the moon. In Latin Diana translates as “heavenly” or “divine”.Dianais a symbol of romance.

This piece is Italian in origin and hallmarked STERLING. A coating of gold wash has been applied to complement the enamels color pallet.
This piece is from the estate of Joan Munkacsi. Joan, of A Charmed Existence, was an avid and extremely knowledgeable collector and seller of vintage charms and charm bracelets. We miss her.
