The Witch-king of Angmar's (Brent McIntyre) crown from Peter Jackson's epic adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Frodo (Elijah Wood) witnessed the spectral monarch when he put on the One Ring during the Nazgul attack on Weathertop.
Created by Weta Workshop, the crown is cast in resin to resemble iron, with four long spires emerging from a twisted band. The resin is hand-painted and expertly weathered to reflect the eternal damnation of the Nazgul.
This crown was originally released by production to United Cutlery as a reference piece for creating replicas. The piece comes with a custom-made display stand, and shows minor wear due to production use, including light scratching. Dimensions: 30 cm x 32 cm x 33 cm (12" x 12½" x 13")
Estimate: £20,000 - 30,000 †Δ
