Part of the ‘Attache Case 61 Series’ of delightful novelty vanities, this was the version without labels of the capital cities. Available from 1956 the wholesale cost in this year was 13/- and the minimum retailer recommended price was 31/6. The Kigu triangular registered trademark is clearly visible and the Kigu registered sliding catch holds the inner lid closed perfectly. The powder well contains the original sifter. The makers applied a layer of transparent enamel during the manufacturing process and so this item will retain its pleasing appearance and never need to be cleaned. All clasps and hinges work perfectly. The compact is in good condition. The mirror bezel is engraved ‘PATENTED MADE IN ENGLAND’. A pristine black pouch is included and the compact is suitable for loose powder L:8.5 x W:6.8cm
