HAMMER RELIC FROM THE ESTATE OF SIR CHRISTOPER LEE
A curious item has been put up for bid at auction. It is listed and reported to be a "maquette" (a sculptor's small preliminary model or sketch) from the 1959 Hammer Films production of THE MUMMY. To what purpose it was utilized in the film is anyone's guess.
The 15-inch figure is made of foam and covered in tape to replicate mummy wrappings. The minimum bid for Lot #1331 is $320 plus a seller's premium.
This relic from the Second Age of Classic Monster Movies is being sold through the estate of Sir Christopher Lee.
