1950s Kigu Ladies Musical Powder Compact, plays Skaters Waltz, Original Vintage Mid Century 50s
Original vintage Mid Century Ladies Musical Compact.
Cylindrical gold tone metal case with engine turned pattern that has a circle in the middle (which could be engraved to personalise the case if purchased for a gift). The compact opens to reveal a clear, bright and clean rectangular mirror with no damage.
The inner compact lid is a small shiny gold tone metal engine turned lid stamped Kigu and inside contains the original puff and sifter showing no signs of use at all. The lid has a small spring button closure.
The clockwork mechanism for the music box is operated by the turn key. Gently turn the key half round to ensure not to over wind. Lift the small brass button fully to play the music and press the brass button down to stop the music.
Externally the case shows that it has been well handled and has lost a little of the gold tone at the sides where it has been held. This cute compact has been used as a novelty item rather than for cosmetic use. Circa 1950s.
Dims – 8.8 x 4.2 x 3cm
Inner compact measures 5 x 3.5 x 0.5 cm
Condition – good used vintage condition. The music box plays Skaters Waltz
Maker; Kigu of London

Razzle Dazzle Vintage
We have always loved the music and style of the 1950s and Razzle Dazzle Vintage was born because we had collected such an amass of clothes and accessories that when we grew out of them (physically) we attended vintage fairs to sell our collection. That was about 10 years ago. As our items sold and we enjoyed trading, as such, meeting like minded people, we decided that in 2012 we would set up a business and go on our first ‘buying trip’ to the U.S.A. We want people to enjoy wearing the Mid Century style as we enjoy it. So we search far and wide to bring you the best vintage fashion and accessories from that era.
Our passion is reflected in the quality of the items we sell and we always strive to bring our customers the best affordable vintage fashion.
