Arnold Rothstein's Pocket Watch, Al Capone's Courthouse Suit and Richard Harrow's Mask - you can actually own these 'Boardwalk Empire' props and costumes!
Ever wanted to own the iconic mask worn by Jack Huston's Richard Harrow in 'Boardwalk Empire'? What about the suit worn by Steve Buscemi's Nucky Thompson in the series' opening title sequence? Well, due to an auction currently run by Screenbid, you can own these very items as well as hundreds more like them.
'Boardwalk Empire' ran for five seasons between 2010 and 2014.
'Boardwalk Empire' concluded its fifth and final series late last year, leaving HBO with a tone of props and costumes knocking around. Lucking, Screenbid was able to come to the rescue, offering to sell off the props and costumes from some of your favourite prohibition gangsters and bootleggers at an auction, running from 20th to 29th January 2015.
Amongst the items on the auction block are the aforementioned mask worn by the disfigured WWI marksman Richard Harrow, who appeared halfway through the first season and went on to become the emotional heart of the show throughout its later seasons. You can similarly bid on a sketch of Harrow, drawn in the second season by Aleksa Palladino's Angela Darmody. And while there are props like road signs and booze crates featured in the show, costumes like the classic white suit worn by Steven Graham's Al Capone in his final appearance in the show as he attends his real-life court hearing are also available.
This isn't the first time that the company has auctioned off an impressive array of props and costumes from Award winning television shows. As well as offering props from HBO's 'True Blood', in 2013, Screenbid raised almost one million USD by selling 337 props, costume items and vehicles used over the course of 'Breaking Bad'. Amongst the haul was a pair of Walter White's underwear, which sold for 9,900 USD, as well as a Cadillac from the show, which was sold for 19,750 USD.
