Fishermans fighting chair from Quints boat in Jaws

Sportfisherman’s fighting chair from Quint’s boat in Jaws. (Universal, 1975) Sportfisherman’s fighting chair with wooden seating surfaces and weathered stainless steel frame, together with the original wooden footrest. The original vinyl pads of the seat, which were white, were painted tan by the studio to resemble distressed leather; they were discarded shortly after the production, and were replaced with different pads. One of the steel supports for the footrest was later replaced, as the original was used during the production to weighdown a polyproplene line that was towing the special effects gear (the line was intruding into the camera’s view), and subsequently lost. This fighting chair and footrest were originally borrowed from a Martha’s Vineyard sportfishing yacht, the Gladius X, fitted to Quint’s boat, the Orca, and used for the exciting fishing scenes pitting Quint against the 25-foot man-eating shark. The chair is 41 in. tall and approx. 28 in. wide, and comes with two letters of authenticity: one from Jaws art director Joe Alves, stating the history of this fighting chair as used in the film, and one from the owner of the sportfishing yacht, the Gladius X, describing its storied history during the production and later during its life aboard the sportfisher, after it was returned to the yacht. A wonderful pair of sea-faring set pieces from Jaws, which played a prominent role in some of the most thrilling scenes of the film. $6,000 – $8,000
