Another lovely musical KIGU powder compact from the minuette series fitted with a swiss movement that plays a beautiful tune, which we think is 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 leaf-scrolls and flowers backed by leaves with a blank cartouche in the centre. The base has the KIGU trademark emblem to its centre.
Inside, the lid contains a clear oval mirror. Above the mirror, on the inner rim, it is stamped with the word PATENTED and below the mirror, MADE IN ENGLAND.
All of the hinges and catches and the musical movement 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. Unfortunatley it does not have it's original box. Overall a fabulous collectors piece or beautiful gift for someone special.
