360 - Live Auction 2016 - Will Shakespeare's (Joseph Fiennes) Hero Sword

Stock #22381

Will Shakespeare's (Joseph Fiennes) hero sword from John Madden's period comedy-drama Shakespeare in Love. Shakespeare used his sword in a duel with Richard Burbage (Martin Clunes) during a rehearsal of Romeo and Juliet, which soon spiralled into an all-out brawl.

This hero sword features a polished aluminium blade, with a steel guard covered in floral designs and a brass grip finished with a brass pommel with images of naked figures and cherubs at the centre. The blade has a blood groove running down the centre, with the edges of the blade blunted to prevent injury to performers during the fight scene. Scratches and dents in the blade indicate the sword was used infight sequences, with some corrosion present on the guard. Dimensions: 104 cm x 20 cm x 2.5 cm (41" x 8" x 1")

Estimate: £3000 - £4000

Item size - 40.94" x 7.87" x 0.79" (104cm x 20cm x 2cm)
