1910s Faux Beauty Marks

310.00

Rare 1910s era “Beauty Spots”—faux beauty marks, or "mouches" (French for "flies"), in original tin. These were inspired by the beauty patch craze of the 18th century, which made a comeback in the early 20th century. One could convey a meaning through the shape and placement of the patch on the face. Read a brief history here:

and see final images for examples.

These beauty spots were made by Johnson & Johnson and come in their original tin. Inside are the original beauty marks in different shapes and sizes including hearts, squares, circles, clovers, and crescent moons. I believe this is a full tin—there are easily hundreds of beauty spots inside. Tin has great design and graphics. Normal wear and overall aged patina as pictured.
