about me ...

A wonderful gold tone powder compact, signed on the insdie Kigu London.

Very nice quality compact, with hand painted design in flowers to the front which unfortunately does have some wear to it. Some scratches to the paint.

It has a round engraved pattern to the bottom, has a mirror inside which is in great condition and all the powder has unfortunately gone.

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.
