Vintage Kigu Basket Powder Compact 1950s


A vintage Kigu Basket 'Bouquet' powder compact in the original presentation box. This is a highly desirable basket shaped loose powder compact which was made in the 1950s. This model is known as the 'Bouquet' (old 63 series 63-03 MJ). There are only two known years of availability 1956 and 1957. At that time this adorable little vanity retailed for 31/6. The 1957 Kigu price list describes this model as 'BOUQUET Compacts (63 Type) w/graceful handle Engine Turned pattern with Fashion Jewel Mount'.  As you can see the compact is set with a faux pearl surrounded by silver tone flowers. Each one of the silver flowers have a tiny faux gem in the middle. We are so happy to find this charming vanity in the original box, with the original drawstring pouch, puff and sifter. Even the box is in super condition. Such a gorgeous little basket compact with a movable handle. The compact is protected by the Kigu 'jeweller's gilt finish' which means it will not tarnish or need to be cleaned. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The powder well is stamped 'BOUQUET' and also with the Kigu registered trademark. The mirror gives a good clear reflection. Measures almost 2 1/4" and weighs 57.9 grams.
