This is a Kigu gilt carryall compact from the 1950's.  Carryall's were popular from the 1930-1950's.  I have looked on the Kigu web site but cannot find this particular one - but there were some similar.  They were expensive at the time - between ?60-?80!  It consists of a gilt metal compact that has two openings.  On one side is the compact - with Kigu marked on the powder lid.  It has the sifter for the loose powder ( and there is a little residue left inside) and it has the puff.  The mirror is in good condition.  On the other side there is a space for 7 cigarettes - although of course they were shorter then!  On the top it has a clamp to hold a lipstick.  It has a small carrying chain.  The front has a patterned decoration round the edge with a plain rectangle to have a name/initial engraved.  The back is a plain pattern.  The lipstick has the Kigu logo on the end.  It has a black material pouch with gold stars and a plain box.  The condition is good.  The main body of the compact measures approx. 3 x 2 1/5 x 4/5 inches - with the lipstick on top.
