Unused Boxed 1950s Kigu Bon Voyage Suitcase Powder Compact Film Prop


An adorable unused Kigu Bon Voyage suitcase powder compact.  This gorgeous vintage accessory is presented in the original box with the original felt pouch, puff and sifter.

In their 1952 catalogue Kigu Ltd. describe this vanity as follows:- 

121 Novelty Travel Case. Highly polished gold colour, non-tarnish finish, oblong "Bon Voyage" Vanity case, precision detailed engraved Hogskin* and Strap design. Spill-proof INNER LID, puff, sifter and pochette.

*Please note this compact is crafted from brass. It is, however, engraved to look like Hogskin.

In 1956 the wholesale cost in 1956 was 13/- and the minimum retailer recommended price was 31/6. The compact has the most glorious deep golden patina throughout. The lid and base are engraved to look exactly like a leather suitcase. Even the handle is functional and serves as a catch. Tilt the handle back slightly to access the interior case where you will see a framed mirror which gives a good and accurate reflection.

The mirror bezel is engraved PATENTED MADE IN ENGLAND. The inner lid is engraved with a pretty little flower and Bon Voyage in elegant script. The Kigu triangular registered trademark is clearly visible. The Kigu registered sliding catch holds the inner lid closed perfectly. The powder well contains the original puff and sifter. The makers applied a layer of transparent enamel during the manufacturing process and so this item will retain its pleasing appearance. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The compact is in super unused condition. Measures 8.5 cm x 6.8 cm. 

This compact is suitable as a loose powder compact or cherished collectible.
