A brass test tube set from the Royal Academy in Aardman Animation’s 2012 adventure comedy The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists!
Pirate Captain (Hugh Grant) is determined to win the Pirate of the Year Award and defeat his rivals Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek). His quest takes him and his crew from their home on Blood Island, to the streets of Victorian London.
This set of test tubes appears in the scene at the Royal Society when the crew are disguised as scientists, but then get outed as pirates and Pirate Captain is nearly executed. The test tubes are on a table of food, and in the film one of the tubes has a small wooden umbrella which is absent from this piece.
The tubes have coloured ‘liquid’ in them, made of clear acrylic, and are in stand made of resin painted to look like brass. The piece has some wear from production use, including the liquids having become cracked, but despite this it remains in a very good condition.
Materials: Resin, Acrylic.
