Bonhams auction - 13th December 2017

It’s that time of year when Bonhams hold their Winter Entertainment auction, and there are a number of quite nice items for sale - IF you have deep pockets!!!

As usual I have separated the items by Doctor era, and you can see the rest of the items here:
Here are just the lots relating to the Fourth Doctor era

Lot 42
Tetrap 'Stun Net' weapon
A Tetrap 'Stun Net' weapon, from Time And The Rani, (Seventh Doctor), 1987.
In moulded fibreglass and wood painted silver and black, 20 3/4in (52.5cm) long.

This is one of the prop weapons carried by the 'background' artist Tetraps.
Estimate £300 - 500
Sold for £1,000

Lot 43
Nemesis bow
A Nemesis bow, from Silver Nemesis, (Seventh Doctor), 1988.
in moulded composite/ resin material painted silver with matching cord grip and nylon bowstring, 31 1/2in (80cm) long.

This is the original 'bow' from the Nemesis statue, formed in a curving 'Classical' style. This prop was resprayed with chrome paint in 2013 when it was used to form part of the junkyard backdrop in the 3D cinematic trailer for 'The Day Of The Doctor'.
Please note that three bows were made for use in this production. Two, of which this is one, were finished in chrome/silver paint, whilst the other was finished in FAP paint to make it glow in certain scenes.
Estimate £300 - 500
Sold for £1,250
