Twiggy Lunch Box

Description (Brief)
This vinyl-clad, cardboard-core lunch box was made by Aladdin in 1967. It has a hinged white plastic handle and metal snap for lid. The box is lavender, and features images of Twiggy modeling several outfits on the lid, along with head shot that has her iconic look. Twiggy was one of the first international supermodels, so famous that she even had her own Barbie doll! This lunch box was just one of many pieces of memorabilia that bore Twiggy’s image at the height of her fame.
