Vintage Kigu cigarette case and ashtray in the original presentation case
A very pretty unused cased Kigu cigarette case & ash tray set. Both items appear to be unused & are in very good condition. The lids show roses & foliage in fine detail. All clasps & hinges work perfectly. Both of the interior cases look excellent & have very attractive gilding. This is a 1960s Kigu '96 Series - Dolphin' bolster shaped cigarette case. This accessory was made by Kigu & can be seen in their online archive. The makers described the case as follows 'The ripple of the silvery engine turned background gleams through the opalescent enamel in the delicate shades of blue, pink or white. Decorated with a motif of flowers in their natural colours.....' The 'Dolphin' series are also described by the manufacturer as ' ........modern in conception, is delicately curved and fits snugly into the palm of one's hand................handy in size yet holds 12 full-size cigarettes.' In the 1960s cigarettes were smaller than they are today & this case is ideal for roll ups or cigarettes measuring 7 cm or less as the case is 7.7 cm long or small items of jewellery / jewelry like ear rings, necklaces or slender business cards.
The cigarette case measures 3" & weighs 52.9 grams.
The ash tray measures 1 4/4" & weighs 20.4 grams.
