Alpex Deluxe Swivel Flash Gun in the Original Box.
This fun find is complete with the leather case and the original box. It is the deluxe model and a B. C. Type unit that was Made in Japan and imported by Alpex. It originally sold for $9.95 at a high end, full service department store in Connecticut and is ca. 1950s. It consists of a cream color plastic body with metal parts. It has an ingenious design, allowing the reflector sections to fan out, creating a backdrop for the lighting, and when done, they fold back into place, making this a pocket size unit that fits into its leather case.
The case has a carry handle as well as cuts in the back so it can be threaded onto a belt. It snaps shut and has the Alpex logo embossed on the flap.
It is a heavy item and it is roughly 4 ½" by 1 ¾". The box is about 6" by 2 ¾".
Condition: no cracks, chips or broken plastic parts. The metal has no tarnish or pitting. The leather case shows some minor wear but is still excellent with a working snap. The box has no inserts and is sturdy although it has some scuffs and scrapes.
We are pleased to offer this piece, which would be a fabulous addition to any photography collection, so don't miss out!
