Avon Golden Owl Vintage 80s Brooch with Lip Balm or Scent Holder

$14.49

Like owls, or just need to keep your lip balm or scented salve handy?
Then this fun vintage brooch from the 80s is what you need! The gold-toned metal body has a delightful ridged texture. It has big deep eyes and a perky beak.
The feather textured body is set on a side hinge to expose a round well for your wax-based makeup goodies.

The original balm has been cleaned out, but you could probably replace it easily by dishing in some from another container that wouldn’t melt when held vertically next to body heat. Back in the day you would buy replacement disks to pop in when you finished off the balm.

One cool idea would be to repurpose it into a locket brooch by inserting a little photo of someone you give a hoot about!
Owl. Hoot. Get it!?

Of course you could just wear it for the love of owls.
