A wonderful Vintage Compact by KIGU

This is s superb example and has a gold metal outer case with a porcelain centre with a rose flower decorated on it,

Powder has since gone and has no puff or closer inside but it is a great case, mirror in excellent condition to.

Measures - just over 8 cm round.

We estimate this compact to date to the 1950's.

Kigu - (compacts) - 1952-1981. Compacts made by the Kaylor factory in Caernarvon, Wales which was acquired by Kigu in 1952. JOSEF KIASCHEK, master Goldsmith, created the first ever Powder Compact in his workshops in Budapest, Hungary. His son, GUSTAV subsequently founded KI-GU in Budapest and was the creator of fine hand-made compacts. Gustav raised three sons, Charles, Paul and George. Charles settled in New York to persue his career as a Goldsmith. George moved to London where he founded KIGU of LONDON and was later joined by his brother Paul in post-war years.
Kigu's reputation for quality of design, innovation and quality remained unsurpassed during the boom years for Powder Compacts. Exports were made to most countries throughout the world where the KIGU brand became a household name.
Upon George's death in 1977, his son David joined the Company having just completed studies at University and took the brand through until the early 1980's at which time the famous KIGU brand was acquired by A.S. Brown Mfg. who themselves had their own range of MASCOT compacts. Subsequently, Laughton & Sons. acquired both the KIGU and MASCOT brands to add to their own STRATTON compact brand.
