A hard to find and truly stunning Kigu Leaping Deer vanity set comprising of an unused cigarette case, unused lipstick holder / mirror and a matching loose powder compact in the original luxon clad case.
More beautiful vanity sets and powder compacts.
The finish on this delightful set is Kigu Ltd. at its best....gorgeous....the famous Kigu all gilt jeweller's finish.
The set is so much more beautiful than the photographs show.
Kigu Ltd. described the set as follows:
The graceful leaping deer, in shining jeweller's gilt against the engine turned "shantung" background is a delight to the eye. A lively and graceful design.
.....made of highly polished gilding metal, protected with an invisible film of enamel which preserves their jewel-like lustre even under extreme climatic conditions.
This matching set is from the Kigu Dolphin line. All catches and hinges work perfectly.
The lovely unused cigarette case is known as the Kigu Dolphin 96 Series (96-717). It was made for standard size cigarettes, which were smaller than those available today. Cigarettes measuring 73 mm long or less will fit in this case. The interior case is gilded. Measures 7.6 cm long and weighs 51.6 grams.
The unused lipstick holder / mirror was named the Flippy by the makers. It is also in excellent condition. The base of the lipstick holder is signed Kigu England. The mirror gives a good reflection - a few marks on the mirror but nothing which detracts from this adorable set. Measures just under 6 cm and weighs 25 grams.
The Kigu Dolphin 26 Series (26-31) compact is also in super condition - clean and gorgeous. This bolster shaped vanity was made for loose face powder. The original puff and sifter are present. The inner lid has the most beautiful honeycomb guilloche design. An oval cartouche contains the triangular Kigu registered trademark. The underside of the inner lid is satinized and the whole set has a luxurious appearance. The mirror gives a good reflection and has a few age marks. The original puff and sifter have some powder residue. Measures 7.5 cm long and weighs 88.7 grams.
