This pair of kitchen weights can be found below deck aboard Queen Victoria’s royal flagship the QV1 as the cruel chef prepares the exotic menu for the Rare Creatures Dining Club, although he is soon interrupted as the Pirate Captain and Charles Darwin storm on-board to rescue Polly the Dodo! The pair of weights have both been cast in resin and decorated to look like metal. There is a small amount of glue residue on the base of each weight from where they would have been secured to the set during filming. The weights remain in excellent production used condition and both measure approximately 9cm (3.5”) in height.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
