Bond & Beyond: A £10,000 golden gun, retro toys and collectables star in new themed auction
Bond & Beyond, a unique style of sale devised by Ewbank’s Auctions, will feature collectables from film set clothing to rare toys and posters associated with Ian Fleming’s hero, as well as from other series, such as The Man From Uncle, The Saint and The Avengers.


LONDON.- A signed replica golden gun from James Bond’s The Man With The Golden Gun and valued at £10,000 is the star lot in a new auction dedicated to 007 and other popular TV and film spies on February 7.

Bond & Beyond, a unique style of sale devised by Ewbank’s Auctions, will feature collectables from film set clothing to rare toys and posters associated with Ian Fleming’s hero, as well as from other series, such as The Man From Uncle, The Saint and The Avengers.

Film fans will remember that the golden gun, the trademark weapon of the world’s premier hitman, Francisco Scaramanga, is disguised as a cigarette case, lighter, pen and cufflink that combine to make the deadly weapon wielded by actor Christopher Lee in the 1974 classic, one of the most popular films of the Bond franchise.

Now Ewbank’s will offer this rare limited edition replica of the gun, autographed by Christopher Lee himself. Complete with replica bullet engraved 007, it comes with a letter of authenticity from the signing with Christopher Lee.

Ewbanks’s specialist Alastair McCrea, who devised the sale concept, said: “We have sold countless film props, costumes, posters and other ephemera linked to the movie world over the years and it has been noticeable how popular the spy franchises are, so we thought why not create our own franchise in offering these types of collectables.

“It’s been amazing to see what consignors have brought in. Apart from the golden gun, we have had a wide range of really rare toys and posters inspired by Bond and others that go back half a century, including, for instance, Oddjob action puppets from Goldfinger, still in their original packaging and dating to 1965.”
