Any story behind it?
Last year I was fortunate to be at the opening day of ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ at The Warner Bros Studios - never one to miss the chance to snap up a collectable I was keen to purchase something limited but fairly inexpensive - the outcome was this fantastic piece of artwork on a limited print run with COA.
However that’s not all - as it was the opening day members of the cast were walking the red carpet - and I was lucky enough to get Rupert ‘Ron Weasley’ Grint and Tom ‘Draco Malfoy’ Felton to sign it for me.
What exactly is it?
A mentioned above it’s a limited edition piece of artwork commissioned to be sold at ‘The Making of Harry Potter’ The picture itself depicts Gringotts Bank - a key location in some of the films. The piece is numbered #101 / 1000.
Is it Rare?
1/1000 - for sure! I haven’t been able to visit the studios since the opening day however as an item to keep I would imagine Harry Potter fans will have snapped these up.
Will it be back?
I would doubt it - sure there will be other ones but the 1/1000 tag should be all that is needed on this particular piece. I haven’t seen another one since.
Where can I get one now?
I’ve scanned well known auction sites and googled to find another but so far nothing - so short of a trip to the Warner Bros studios I don’t know if this particular piece can be purchased anymore?
Both Rupert Grint and Tom Felton stated how much they liked the item - the main problem I have now is actually what to do with it!! The signatures are actually on the plastic which is tragic as I wish now I has opened it for them to sign instead!!
I would be very keen to hear if anyone else has purchased any of the Making of Harry Potter artwork - comment below if you have!
