Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Lot # 69 - Live Auction 2017 - Trumpeteer's Jacket

Stock #73032

A trumpeteer's jacket from Ken Hughes' musical adventure Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Trumpeteers wore their jackets outside Baron Bomburst's (Gert Frobe) castle in Vulgaria after he kidnapped Grandpa Potts (Lionel Jeffries), believing him to be creator of Chitty the flying car.

The purple jacket is made of felt material, with red collar, cuffs and epaulettes. A yellow trim runs throughout the jacket, with decorative metal buttons across the front, and hook-and-eye clasps to fasten it. Two M. Berman Ltd. costumiers labels are located in the lining. The jacket displays light signs of wear as a result of age and use, with stitching on the right epaulette having come away from the jacket and slight tears to the underarm lining.

£500 - 700
