A lovely musical KIGU powder compact from the minuette series fitted with a swiss movement that plays Brahms Waltz. The compact is in gold tone metal, oval in shape with a scalloped edge base and a slightly domed lid. The lid has an engine turned pattern with a series of vertical striped bands and flowers with a blank cartouche in the centre. The base has the KIGU trademark emblem to its centre.By sliding the catch down, you release the inner guard and access the loose powder well. This appears to have never been used and contains the original unused mesh sifter. The original unused powder puff is also intact and sits on top of the closed inner guard.All of the hinges and catches are in excellent working order and although there is some minor wear due to handling over the years, the compact is in very good vintage condition. It also comes with its original drawstring pouch and cream KIGU box, which is now showing signs of 'shabby chic'.
Overall a fabulous collectors piece or unusual gift for someone special.
