Unused Kigu Compact / Vanity Set In Original Case 1950s
A stylish and unused Kigu compact, cigarette case and vanity set which is presented in the original 'luxon' covered case. The makers used cream coloured imitation leather to clad the case. More beautiful makeup compacts.
This set contains a compact which is suitable for loose face powder or as a handbag mirror and the mid-century cigarette case will hold cigarettes measuring 8.7 cm long or less. This is such a wonderful find! These sets are extremely hard to source in an unused condition. Only high quality materials were used. The case is lined with silk and velvet. The case is designed to double as a jewellery / jewelry box.
This wonderfully well preserved set comprises of:
One "Dolphin" "26 Series" (26-815) loose powder compact - unused and gorgeous.
As the Kigu catalogue states "...............modern in conception fits snugly into the palm of one's hand....."
The design which decorates all the items in this splendid set is described by the makers as 'The highly polished flowing curves dominate the highly polished engine turned Catherine-wheel design. This "best seller" illustrates the Kigu flair for originality and distinction.'
As you can see from the images the set is very beautiful. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The inner lid of the compact is decorated with a honeycomb design and an oval cartouche adorned with the triangular Kigu registered trademark. The original puff and sifter are present and they are pristine. The puff bears the Kigu registered trademark in gilt. The mirror gives an excellent reflection.
One "Dolphin" "96 Series" ( 96-815) cigarette case which matches the design of the compact, comb holder and lipstick holder. The interior case is coated in a protective layer of golden enamel which does not show any signs of use. All clasps and hinges work perfectly.
One brass comb holder is fitted with the original comb. The comb is in tact - no missing teeth. The comb has the embossed signature "KIGU LONDON MADE IN ENGLAND".
One lipstick holder. The base of the lipstick holder is stamped with the triangular Kigu registered trademark. The original card lipstick shaped instruction leaflet is in place.
