A section of grass from Tim Burton’s 2005 adaptation of the Roald Dahl classic Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
Eccentric genius chocolate maker Willy Wonka (Johnny Depp) holds a competition where five lucky children will win the chance to venture inside his mysterious chocolate factory. Poor but kind Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore) catches an unexpected break as one of the winners of Wonka’s Golden Tickets.
The children first experienced the magic of Wonka’s factory when they visited the Chocolate Room soon after entering the factory. Fields of bright green edible grass stretched out before them – this section of artificial grass was used in the production of this scene, designed for a specific look and for durability as the actors traversed the set between multiple takes.
Made from plastic, the grass is in fact not edible! It consists of a square lattice with long pointed strands of plastic attached in groups, creating the effect of a swaying wild field of bright green grass when placed next to similar sections. Despite production-based wear including some broken strands and light soiling, the piece remains in overall good condition.
