Harry Potter props including Daniel Radcliffe’s wand and glasses to go up for auction
Brace yourselves, Potterheads! Prop Store have announced a new Hollywood charity auction, putting up 10 official Harry Potter props straight from the Warner Bros. archive.
Coming with original Certificates of Authenticity are Harry Potter’s own wand and glasses, made for Daniel Radcliffe during production on Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 1 & 2 (both are estimated for sale between £21,500 – £35,900), Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letter, Ron Weasley’s Howler letter, an autographed call sheet, an autographed book of Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban, and more.
One hundred per cent of the Hammer Price proceeds from the sale of the wand, glasses, and a limited edition set of the seven Harry Potter books signed by J.K. Rowling will benefit the author’s charity, Lumos Foundation.
Prop Store COO Brandon Alinger says: “This month’s auction is the first time Harry Potter fans will have a chance to bid on a Harry Potter wand and set of eyeglasses that have come directly from the Warner Bros. Studios archive. Bidders on those items, and a limited edition boxed set of the seven Harry Potter books signed by J.K. Rowling, will also be directly supporting Lumos, an international charity founded by J.K. Rowling that is fighting for every child’s right to a loving family to ensure they have the care and protection they need to thrive.
“We are incredibly honoured for this chance to help Lumos further its work supporting vulnerable children and families while bringing a new opportunity to fans of Harry Potter.
“These pieces, along with over 1,300 other props, costumes and memorabilia will be sold in Prop Store’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction on June 29, June 30, and July 1.”
