As seen on the Kigu archive* - a wonderful 1960s Kigu "Party Case".
Both the lid & base show the ornate design we have come to expect from mid century Kigu vanities. The jeweller's gilt finish is excellent as is the whole item. All clasps & hinges work perfectly
It is a double access carry all with a face powder compartment (image one) which has a delightful petit point insert. This embroidery is clean and beautiful. It has been well protected by a clear protective cover. The original presentation box, puff & sifter are present and they are in good order. The mirror is good and gives a clear and accurate reflection. The inner lid is decorated with a honey comb design & an oval cartouche inscribed with the triangular Kigu registered trademark. The other compartment is for seven vintage cigarettes or money. The cigarette holder & everything in excellent working order. The "Snake-Type" chain perfect & sturdy. A very practical evening bag. The unused lipstick holder still works perfectly. The lipstick has the triangular Kigu trademark on the base. This vintage accessory was coated at the point of manufacture with a layer of transparent enamel which means it will never tarnish or need to be cleaned.
This adorable vintage Kigu "Party Case" measures 3" X 3" & weighs 182.6 grams.
