Scottish Thistle Compact - Kigu England

Scottish Thistle Compact - Kigu England


Kigu powder compacts are famed throughout the world for their beauty & durability. Back in the day they were given as gifts on special occasions. For example a young lady’s twenty first birthday or as a wedding gift. They were considered to be expensive gifts that were costly to produce and made by artisans with a high level of skill. Essentially they are considered to be an item of jewellery, as well as a practical accessory.

This 1950's brass makeup compact features Scottish thistle decals which are in perfect condition as well as it's original unused powder screen and paper insert. In excellent unused condition. Brass button to open this compact is a little stiff and requires a very hard press in order to unlatch.

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage items being used, we cannot guarantee that any item will be in perfect working condition. Oftentimes vintage items need a bit more creativity to operate than a brand new item and can have unique quirks like a stiff button, or wiggly latch. We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.

Returns must be shipped back at customer's expense and original purchase and shipping will be refunded after a case is opened with Canada Post.
