Lee was Count Dracula in the Hammer Horror films, James Bond villain Scaramanga in The Man with the Golden Gun, Count Dooku in the Star Wars prequels and memorably Saruman in The Lord of the Rings. With an acting career which spanned across eight decades and with his name in the credits of over 200 films and television series, the late Sir Christopher Lee was one British cinema's greatest icons.

The collection includes the burgundy velvet smoking jacket with quilted silk collar believed worn by Sir Christopher during an appearance in 1970s children's science fiction television series The Tomorrow People. He can be seen wearing an identical jacket in The Rameses Connection: Part 1, in which he plays the lead villain Sam Rees/Ramases. The jacket is estimated to sell for £600-900.


Lord of the Rings gilet owned and worn by Lee to celebrate Day 133 of filming on 23rd May 200 will be going under the gavel. Only 1 000 gilets were made as gifts from the film's director Peter Jackson and his wife, screenwriter Fran Walsh.


To another icon of British cinema, the production-used broomstick from the 2001 film Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone will be in the sale. The broom was purchased by the current owner from a crew member before the release of the first movie and is estimated at £3 000-5 000.
