1971 Hallmarked Sterling Silver Kigu Compact For Loose Foundation And Rimmel Stay Matte

£275.00

A shimmering beauty! This fully hallmarked sterling silver Kigu compact mirror is decorated in a style which the makers named shantung.

In the Kigu catalogue this style of engraving is referred to as - 
                                                                                                                                            
shantung......which brings to mind the delicate shimmer of silk.   
                                                                                                                              
The engraving does resemble the silk which was historically made in the province of Shandong. The irregular textures of the silk shimmer in the light. This type of material is often used for bridal gowns & the silversmiths at Kigu captured the essence of this fabric in sterling silver.                                                                                                        
The mirror gives a good clear reflection. The catches and hinges work perfectly. The compact, box, pouch, puff and washable sifter are all in good condition. Clean with no signs of face powder. The makers lacquered this lovely accessory and so it will not tarnish or require cleaning.
