Adolf Hitler's (Martin Wuttke) costume from Quentin Tarantino's war film Inglourious Basterds. The Führer wore his costume while ridiculing two of his military command and interviewing Private Butz (Sönke Möhring), the only survivor of a patrol ambushed by the Basterds.
The costume consists of a cream woollen cape with a red lining (labelled "Adolf Hitler"); a brown jacket (labelled "Hitler 173-A04-8P"); a pair of matching trousers (labelled "P. 88"); and a brown leather holster. Adorning the back of the cape is a black-and-white military cross emblem featuring a golden eagle clutching a swastika. The jacket's left breast pocket displays three German badges, and attached to the left sleeve is a red armband bearing a swastika. The costume comes with an additional loose armband. A Hero Collection costumier's label is sewn inside the jacket, trousers and spare armband.
Completing the attire is a dagger comprising a metal blade, a brass-coloured ornate guard and a glossy brown grip. The weapon is sheathed in a scabbard. There are marks present on the back of the cape, and one of the badges on the jacket is slightly loose.
Estimate: £6,000 - 8,000 M
