256 - Live Auction 2015 - The Witch King's Dagger

Stock #47426

The Witch King's Prop Dagger from Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. Garnering numerous Academy Awards for Visual Effects, Makeup, Musical Score and Cinematography, this item came from the scene in which Frodo and the hobbits were ambushed on the hill at Weathertop by the Nazgûl. In the scene, Frodo used the One Ring and was stabbed by the Witch King, whose cursed Morgul dagger poisoned the young hobbit.

Constructed by the world-renowned Weta Workshop that gained notoriety for its achievements in designing and constructing props that were faithful to Tolkien's writing, this prop dagger features a jagged aluminium blade affixed to a ribbed resin handle with a pointed cross guard and spiked pommel. The dagger has been weathered in shades of faux silver and brown, giving it the appearance of rusted iron and is one of a small number of principal character Lord of the Rings pieces in private hands today. This particular piece was gifted to executives at Sideshow Toys who visited the set in 2002. As Sideshow Toys was licensed to distribute collectibles from The Lord of the Rings films, the principals were allowed to choose mementos from the set. It was at the request of director Peter Jackson that these select props be branded with a unique code and note of ownership. This item has been branded reading: "Witch King Dagger 12 June 02 l 0002 W Sideshow Toy."The piece exhibits minor wear due to production use; however it remains overall in very good condition. Dimensions: 66 cm x 18 cm x 3 cm (26” x 7” x 1”)
