Kigu Basket Loose Powder Compact 1950s


A gorgeous 1950s Kigu basket shaped compact.  This '63-type' novelty basket loose powder compact has a 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. Such attention to detail! The interior case contains an excellent mirror. A black drawstring pouch is included. The interior case bears the triangular registered Kigu trademark. It is also signed 'Bouquet REG. DES.' All hinges and clasps work perfectly. 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.  Measures 5.5 cm and weighs 52.1 grams.
