Holy Grail SD Studios From Russia With Love Attache Case for sale at Ewbanks

The sought-after prop replica is part of the Entertainment & Memorabilia Premier Live Auction and is expected to fetch £5,000 - 8,000 although it could be quite a bit more.

One of the earliest and most imaginative gadgets to emerge from the brain of Q, the innocent looking attaché case has two hidden daggers with ejection mechanism (one on each side), Magnetic Talcum Powder Container, concealed Gold Sovereigns, Rounds of Ammunition and original SD Studios folder containing mission paperwork and operating instructions.

“This attaché case is seen as the Holy Grail in Bond collecting,” says Ewbank’s Partner and Head of Entertainment Memorabilia, Alastair McCrea. “It was an official release, and the designers took all the measurements from the original film prop and created this replica."

The exploding talcum powder created one of the most iconic of Bond scenes, the fight between Bond and assassin Red Grant.
