This is a pretty heart shaped vintage powder compact from Kigu of London. On the lid there is a beautiful petit point insert of colourful flowers in a gilt leaf engraved frame. The reverse of the compact has a very nice engine turned pattern resembling woven fabric, enhacing the overall effect of the compact.
On opening the compact there is a clear round mirror in the inside of the lid. Above the mirror the word 'CHERIE' in script is engraved with PATENTED underneath. Below the mirror, near the hinge, the words 'MADE IN ENGLAND' are also engraved.
Overall the compact shines like new and the internal and external hinges are all in excellent working order. A lovely collectable item or gift for a lady who likes something special and more traditional, despite the lack of the original box.
