COSTUMES: Star Wars Empire Strikes Back - C-3PO's Hand

“C-3PO's (Anthony Daniels) hand from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back. As the talkative protocol droid, Daniels wore mechanical-looking gloves throughout the film. It is likely that this right-hand glove was also used during the production of Richard Marquand's Star Wars: Return of the Jedi.” This is a holy grail piece. As anything would be from a Star Wars film. This piece is just stunning.

“This glove is made of moulded flexible urethane painted silver and bronze, with black palms, yellow stripes down the fingers along the palm, a split in the palm for putting the glove on the actor, and mechanical ridged details on the knuckles and joints. Affixed to the wrist are two metal snaps for buttoning the glove to Daniels' costume. The glove exhibits signs of wear and age, including flaking paint and stiffness to the urethane, as well as discoloration where the finger rings once were, and comes on an acrylic display stand. Dimensions: 18 cm x 13.5 cm x 31.25 cm (7" x 5 1/4" x 12 1/4")”

This hand sold on October 1st, 2019 for $19,000 with the Propstore auction.
