Newspaper clippings and a photo 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.
Although this set is not obviously seen on screen, various newspaper clippings like this one were hung on the walls of Dr Wilbur Wonka’s home and dental practice – notably in the background of the scene when Willy revisited his childhood home to make peace with his father.
The clipping features a picture of a young Willy Wonka alongside clippings from a newspaper with articles about competition winner Mike Teavee and Willy Wonka himself. The clippings are set under glass in a black wooden frame. They have been intentionally aged to look older. The piece also shows a little wear from production, with some scuffs and scratches around the frame, but remains in an otherwise good condition.
Materials: Wood, Paper, Glass, Ferrous Metals.
