Lot Essay

In Austria, James Bond (Timothy Dalton) employs every gadget on his Aston Martin V8 to elude pursuing Russian soldiers, including the self-destruct button. This leaves Kara’s (Maryam D’Abo) cello case as the only option for a final get-away vehicle.

This is one of three sleds made by the Bond Special Effects team for filming the scene in Austria (the others retained by the EON archive). Maryam D'Abo has now signed this prop sled. It was signed when Ms. D'Abo attended Part I of this two part Official Charity Auction, the Gala Evening Sale on Wednesday 28 September 2022.

The seller of this lot has agreed to donate their entire proceeds of the sale of this lot, if sold, to The Silverlining Brain Injury Charity, a registered UK charity. The Silverlining Brain Injury Charity is registered in England and Wales with registered charity number 1157749. In addition, Christie’s will donate our entire buyer’s premium, less any costs incurred in selling the lot.
