    Description

    Lord of the Rings Hobbit Shire Production Drawing (Ralph Bakshi/United Artists, 1978). "Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo?" Well, this early production drawing from Ralph Bakshi's 1978 Lord of the Rings will help! This outstanding early concept piece features a wonderful view of the rolling hills of the Shire and even has a small Hobbit figure standing in the pathway. It is from the hand of David Jonas and is super-detailed graphite and Conte crayon art on paper. The image area is 17" x 12" and the paper size is approximately 24" x 19". Stunningly beautiful, as the Shire should be. Thumb tack holes, handling, and major edge wear and border tears, including a missing corner, but nowhere near any of the image area; with proper matting, it would frame up beautifully! Overall Good Condition.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
