Vintage Schildkraut Handmade Petit Point Bead Lipstick Mirror Compact
Vintage Schildkraut Handmade Petit Point Bead Lipstick Mirror Compact is such a wonderful piece that appears to have never been used. The mirror and lipstick holder are connected by a hinge for either a carry along compact or a handheld mirror and lipstick. Using the hinge, the mirror can easily be extended to serve as a hand held mirror or to remove the lipstick base for application. The lipstick base appears to have never been used and is pristine. The backside of the mirror is decorated with floral petit point handiwork boasting 900 stitches to the square inch and tiny white seed beads. The sticker indicating this is produced by Schildkraut is still intact on the mirror. I estimated this piece to be circa 1950s. To more closely inspect photos, simply click on the binocular icon on the top right corner of any photo.
Excellent condition in every way. There are 2 very small spots of discoloration on the top right of the mirror that can readily be examined in the photos. Except for this, everything about this piece is simply pristine. The compact measures 2 7/8" wide and 1 7/8" wide. When fully extended, the handheld compact mirror measures 5 1/2" long. I have indicated the country as other since I am uncertain as to where this piece was actually produced.
I have a vast inventory of some of the most desirable designers; Boucher, Carnegie, Ciner, DeLizza and Elster (aka Juliana), Eisenberg, Haskell, Hobe, Kramer, Krementz, Lane, Schreiner, Schiaparelli, Trifari, Vendome, and Weiss as well as Avon, Coro, Sara Coventry, and Lisner.
Numerous pieces are book pieces and many have matching pieces so many demi-parures are available. I acquired so much of this jewelry that I will be working on offering it in the store for years to come.
This piece comes from a dear friend and a truly exceptional lady. While having an antique shop, she has collected various antiques and unsigned and signed designer pieces for the last 40 years and has an incredibly discerning eye for quality as well as uniqueness. The extensive nature of her collection has meant that she has not worn most pieces more than once.
It is my distinct pleasure that she has chosen to pass her extensive collection on to me and I will be keeping some special pieces for myself. I will also be offering some for sale and please know that with each piece comes a wonderful legacy of a very special lady that makes this jewelry all the more special.
There are additional antique and vintage jewelry pieces in the various Studio Categories and other collectibles, books, art, glass, china, kitchen, home decor, and retro pieces in the store.

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.
Received item exactly as described. Very happy with my purchase, thanks.
What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
Very special gift for myself
