"The Eye of the Needle" dagger from Robert Zemeckis' comedy Death Becomes Her. Lisle Von Rhuman (Isabella Rossellini) used her ceremonial dagger to cut both Madeline Ashton (Meryl Streep) and Ernest Menville (Bruce Willis) to drop samples of her age-reversing, immortality potion directly into their blood streams.
This rose gold-color metal dagger has a leaf-shaped blade with a pointed tip and a decorative crown detail with droplet-like prongs at the guard. The gold-plated grip is designed to resemble the eye of a sewing needle with a more literal blue and red metal human eye-shaped faux-gemstone installed in the center. The dagger exhibits minimal signs of wear from production use and age, but remains in excellent overall condition. Dimensions: 12" x 2" x 2" (30.5 cm x 5 cm x 5 cm)
Estimate: $8,000 - 10,000
Item size - 11" x 1" x 0.5" (27.94cm x 2.54cm x 1.27cm)
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
