Queen Amidala's (Natalie Portman) prototype headdress from the production of George Lucas' Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. Amidala wore her headdress when she decided to return to her home planet of Naboo to stop the Trade Federation attack. This headdress was a prototype and is slightly different from the one ultimately seen in the film.
The curved headdress is made of thin metal with cast line patterns. A decorative emblem featuring an upside-down symbol of the Royal House of Naboo is adhered to the centre. Presented on a black custom display stand, the lot exhibits some tarnishing, small holes and minor damage to the top of the emblem, and the metal has become exposed in places. Dimensions (displayed): 15 cm x 22.5 cm x 26 cm (6" x 8¾" x 10¼")
Estimate: £1,000 - 1,500 †Δ
