Kigu Basket / Bouquet Novelty Powder Compact 1956
An adorable mid-century Kigu 'Bouquet' '63-01' with 'engine turned pattern'. A '63-type' novelty basket loose powder compact with 'graceful handle'. The whole piece is decorated with engine turned engravings. The main body of the basket has engraving which resembles the basket weave design. The lid has a circular cartouche which the makers named the 'initial medallion', as it would often be engraved with the recipients initial/s. The carry handle is also engraved with a pattern that would be seen on the handle of a wicker basket.
The interior case contains an excellent mirror as well as the original signed puff and sifter. The interior case bears the triangular registered Kigu trademark. It is also signed 'Bouquet REG. DES.' All hinges and clasps work perfectly. The whole item is in super condition and it is a credit to the makers. This little gem will never tarnish or need to be cleaned as it was coated with a layer of transparent enamel as one of the final stages in the manufacturing process. It looks as though this model just had one known year of availability - 1956. An immaculate pouch is included. Measures 5.5 cm and weighs 53.7 grams.
