An oversize cigarette butt from Marc Caro and Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 1995 fantasy film The City of Lost Children.
Old and decrepit Krank (Daniel Emilfork) has lost his capacity for dreaming and is attempting to fight death by stealing the dreams of children. Krank's cadre of cloned henchmen (Dominique Pinon) snatch 5-year-old Denree (Joseph Lucien) to subject him to the horrific dream-retrieval process. The boy's father, One (Ron Perlman), the hulking strongman of a traveling circus, and his precocious 9-year-old friend, Miette (Judith Vittet), join forces to defeat Krank's minions and save Denree.
This cigarette butt and others like it were made for the production to be used in scenes with the trained flea. The butt is made of crushed bamboo poles with a biscuit foam exterior. It has been painted to look like it has been lit and smoked.
The cigarette butt has some wear from production use and age, including some scuffing and scratches, and some of the paint has come away from the exterior, revealing the foam underneath. Overall it remains in a good, production-used condition.
Materials: Wood, Foam.
