A rare black enamel & silver set Kigu 'Minuette' made in Kigu's heyday. The lid has gorgeous silver marcasite set lily which is splendid. This luxurious silver lily has the full complement of stones in place & it is very beautiful. Black enamel is difficult to photograph as it is highly reflective. The white paper I placed the powder box on is reflecting on the enamel. The enamel is dense lustrous black with no light patches or fading. This is the first time I have seen a musical powder box with this lid decoration come up for sale. The black enamel does not have any losses & is not faded.
The interior all gilt jeweller's / jeweler's finish & signed 'KIGU' within the registered triangular trademark & the word 'Minuette' inscribed too. Turn the key clockwise & the adorable tune plays really well. Just delightful! The little musical powder box comes with the original presentation box, pouch & sifter. The whole musical powder box is in excellent condition, including the beveled mirror which gives a good & accurate reflection. The edges are scalloped & the base is signed 'KIGU MADE IN ENGLAND'. All clasps & hinges work perfectly.

This 1950s Kigu ' Concerto' measures 31/4" & weighs 132.1 grams.
