Rare Vintage 1950's Kigu 'flying Saucer' Musical Powder Compact For Sale

Rare Vintage 1950's Kigu 'flying Saucer' Musical Powder Compact

A Fabulous Rare Vintage Kigu 'Flying Saucer' Musical Powder Compact - c1957

This is a wonderful rare 'Flying Saucer' musical powder compact by Kigu. The name 'Flying Saucer' was registered as a trademark in 1950, the 'flying saucer' with a spiral of stars appeared in 1955 and this model with the musical movement first appeared in 1957.

The compact features a flattened goldtone rim surrounding a domed lid and base in midnight blue enamel with a stream of spiralling gold stars.There is a key on top of the lid for winding up the mechanical musical movement which plays 'Oh what a beautiful morning'! There is also a little button which can be depressed to switch the music off, or released to let the music play. The hinge of the compact is strong and the catch closes well. It releases with a press button catch. The lower dome of the compact has a flattened base to allow the compact to be placed on a dressing table.

Inside the compact there is a round mirror in the underside of the lid, around which is written 'Made in England' and 'Flying Saucer TRADEMARK'. The mirror is in very good condition, with no damage. There is an inner lid with the trademark crowned triangular 'KIGU' logo in the centre and a slider with which to release the lid, under which is the powder receptacle, which still has it's original powder sifter and still a little powder remaining. The original powder puff is no longer present. The underside of the compact has slight wear, as you would expect to see.

Thecompactmeasures approx 2.75 inches/7cms in diameter and 1.55 inches/3.3cms deep and was made in England around 1957. It is in good condition apart from a small scuff on the top of the dome and a few of the stars have had their gold paint slightly rubbed. There is also slight wear on the underneath of the compact, as you would expect to see. Please see the photos which form part of the description

Omitted to say in the original listing that the musical movement is still in working order and plays well, however I am unable to identify the tune it plays.
