1960s Unused Boxed Compact And Lipstick Holder Set
A super unused compact and lipstick holder in the original box. This vanity set was made by Kigu Ltd. for an unknown jewellery / jewelry chain. Some of the larger makers, Laughton & Sons Ltd.(Stratton brand), Kigu Ltd., A.S. Brown (Mascot brand) were engaged regularly by department stores and jewellery chains to manufacture vanities. Often these are exact models to those already made by the manufacturers but they were unsigned. This set is lovely, the gilt surfaces have been protected by a layer of transparent enamel and so they will never tarnish or need to be cleaned. The compact is suitable for use with loose and compressed face powder. The lid is decorated with a complex guilloche engraved design and it features a cartouche, or as the makers would say 'an initial medallion'. The compact opens easily and the interior has a mirrored lid. The mirror is perfect. The powder well is lined with the original pale yellow insert. The base has an engraved spiral design. The unused unsigned puff and sifter are typical of those made by Kigu Ltd. at this period in time. The lipstick holder has exactly the same glorious deep golden patina of the compact. The lid of the presentation box is made from transparent acetate and it is in good condition. The compact measures 7 cm and weighs 61.2 grams. The lipstick holder measures 5.7 cm and weighs 14.8 grams.
