A Crow as a Beauty Mark?

Muriel Window circa 1913-14

From The San Antonio Light, 29 Nov 1914:
Muriel Window of "The Passing Show [of 1914]",
claims to be the originator of the silhouette
beauty spot fad. It is Miss Window's habit to
wear her favorite bird or animal, regardless
of size, on her cheek. One of Miss Window's
favorites is a crow in repose, the purpose
being, evidently, to keep crow's feet away
from her beautiful eyes. She occasionally
wears a faun on her cheek, the said faun
striving modestly to leap over a mole.

Muriel, the first Mrs. Robert Emmett Keane

Muriel appeared in "The Century Girl"

Have a great day!
