Freddy Krueger's (Robert Englund) bladed glove from the production of Chuck Russell's horror sequel A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors. Krueger brandished his iconic bladed glove throughout the film as he once again terrorized Nancy Thompson (Heather Langenkamp) and her fellow patients at a mental hospital.
While this production glove was custom-made for the third Elm Street film, it was not used and differs distinctly from the gloves ultimately seen on-screen. Nightmare gloves frequently transferred and were re-used from film to film, and a nearly identical version sharing this glove's distinctly paler beige leather base and vertical stitching around the wrist later appeared in 1991's Wes Craven's New Nightmare during the talk show sequence. Due to the similarities, this glove may have made its way to the production of New Nightmare as well.
The glove features beige leather with holes cut out of the palm and fingers, a brown polyester-and-metal snap-closure, and a burnished metal mechanism with bendable joints and four blades soldered into the tops of the fingers. It is in good overall condition with red stains on the inside palm, some discoloration to the metal, and various signs of age and use to the leather. Dimensions: 14" x 7" x 1.5" (36 cm x 18 cm x 4 cm)
Estimate: $15,000 - 20,000
