Hero screen-used illuminating Bedknob from Bedknobs and Broomsticks

Hero screen-used illuminating Bedknob from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. (Walt Disney, 1971) During the 1940s blitz in WWII England, three “Rawlings” children are evacuated to a small village called Pepperinge Eye. There they meet “Miss Price” (Angela Lansbury), an apprentice witch hoping to use her magic to assist in the war effort. As a reward for keeping her secret, Miss Price casts a spell on a bedknob that young “Paul Rawlings” has removed from a brass bed in the children’s room. When re-attached, the bed will travel anywhere that Paul asks. This is the actual bedknob that is the very key to the entire story and even the film’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks title. Consisting of solid, translucent red cast resin, the 3 in. round knob has a fluted foot where the knob would connect to a bedpost. The knob has been lightly plated in metallic gold with spots created to allow a strong light source, introduced through the 2.25 in. long hole from the base of the knob, make it appear to “magically” illuminate/glow from within. In the film, the bedknob’s glow is subsidized through special effects, but this practical knob enhanced the glowing appearance. Exhibits age, production-wear and some metallic surface scratching and pitting. Overall in very good condition. The bedknob is an icon of screen FX magic, within a beloved example of Disney story-telling magic. Originally obtained from special effects coordinator Danny Lee and comes with letter of provenance. Estimated Price:$12,000 – $15,000 USD
