It is possible to buy feet and ears of hobbits in California
In America detachable feet and ears of hobbits were put on auction. The mentioned items were used as detachables during shooting of the trilogy The Lord of the Rings by Peter Jackson.
In particular, a pair of hairy and painted dirty feet and detachable ears, which were worn by the actor Sean Astin, who played Samwise Gamgee, will be auctioned. The feet can be worn as usual shoes. It is expected that they will bring the auction home Julien’s Auсtiоn between 15 and 30 thousand dollars. The starting price for the ears is 5-8 thousand dollars.
Another lot is the sword of Frodo Baggins. This is a sham sword, with which the actor Elijah Wood fought. The organizers of the auction value the sword at 100-200 thousand dollars. The staff of the wizard Gandalf the White will cost the collectors from 50 to 70 thousand dollars, the staff of Saruman may be brought from the auction for 80 thousand dollars.
The auction is set on December 5. A few days ago the auction house opened an exhibition, where the visitors can see the lots.
The auction organizers note that it is a once in a lifetime chance for the fans of The Lord of the Rings to get the valuable objects for their collections.
