Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring

Lot # 510 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Second Age Elven Shield

Stock #102841

An Elven shield from Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's fantasy epic The Lord of the Rings. The Elven army carried shields during the film's prologue, in which the Last Alliance of Elves and Men fought against the Dark Lord Sauron (Sala Baker) and his forces at the foot of Mount Doom. Created by the artists at Weta Workshop in New Zealand, under the direction of Multi-Academy Award-winner Richard Taylor, the shield was part of a collection issued to United Cutlery for reference in producing a replica version for fans.

The shield is made of dense urethane and resembles a large leaf, detailed with spiralling patterns and painted a dark brown colour with gold-coloured highlights, giving it a mystical, earthy feel. The back includes a vertical metal grip decorated to resemble wood and wrapped in brown leather. The high level of detail suggests it was created for moments when an Elven shield was in close proximity to the camera. It exhibits minor wear due to production use, including scuffs to the paint and slight wear to the pointed tips.

The rear of the shield is marked with assorted references, including "United Cutlery" and "0037W". The lot includes a certificate of authenticity from United Cutlery employee Kit Rae, accompanied by a letter from a previous owner who performed extensive research into the piece's history. Dimensions: 13 cm x 55 cm x 137 cm (5 1/2" x 22" x 55")
