Superb Vintage Kigu Map of World Powder Compact 1957


A wonderful mid-century compact in super condition with the original accessories. One of the most hard to find world map vintage powder compacts. We rarely find this model and this is the best example we have added to our collection. The compact is engraved with the landmasses and seas on a lustrous golden satin background. 

This gorgeous vintage powder compact was described in the 1957 Kigu Ltd catalogue as:

52-99 Map of World in relief on satin background

The interior case is fitted an excellent clear mirror. The inner lid is stamped with the Kigu Ltd. registered trademark. The pristine felt pouch, puff and sifter are included with the presentation box. Image two shows the all round excellent condition of this vanity which is so difficult to photograph as a consequence of its highly reflective exterior case. All catches and hinges work perfectly.

This vanity is so well made that is will not loose it lustrous golden appearance. No  cleaning is necessary. Measures 7.2 cm diameter. Weighs 78.4 grams.

This compact is ideal for use with loose foundation, as a handbag mirror or cherished collectible.
