Willy Wonka and Chocolate Factory Invention Room Key

GENE WILDER HERO “WILLY WONKA” MECHANICAL INVENTION ROOM KEY FROM WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY – (Paramount, 1971) This is the very memorable and unique mechanical skeleton key used by Gene Wilder as Wonka to unlock the doors to gain access to his top secret Invention Room. Crafted of metal painted gold, the key measures 14 in. long. The oval metal handle in the back turns a central shaft mounted to a gear, which turns two flanking gears. In this scene of the film, Wilder pulls the key out of his jacket pocket, fits the two attached skeleton keys in their slanted keyholes and cranks the handle of the key repeatedly as he welcomes the party to his Invention Room (speaking German!). Then, returning to English, Wonka continues, “Now remember, no messing about. No touching, no tasting, no telling.” An incredible one of a kind expertly crafted prop from the film. From the collection of Robert Newman, Location and Financial Advisor for Wolper Pictures, Ltd. Estimate $15,000 – $20,000 Starting Bid $15,000
