The bladed glove worn by Johnny Depp in "Edward Scissorhands" is up for auction - where it is expected to sell for up to $50,000.
The mechanical prop was used the in the movie's iconic scene when character Edward used his blades to turn an ice angel into a snow flurry for Kim, played by Winona Ryder.
It is described as showing "extensive wear and aging on the foam rubber element," but already three online bids have been placed - the highest at $20,000.
The dangerous-looking glove is up sale with auction house Propstore and will be going under the hammer in Los Angeles this month.
Other horror movie items also up for grabs in the same sale include jackets from vampire classic "The Lost Boys," expected to sell for over $116,000.
Jeff Goldblum’s Final Form Head from "The Fly" is expected to go for nearly $15,000 and a clapperboard used on "From Dawn Till Dusk" featuring autographs from George Clooney, Quentin Tarantino, and Robert Rodriguez estimated to reach over $14,000.
The auction is taking place in Valencia, California, on June 21, and features a collection of film memorabilia worth over $8.6 million.
Brandon Alinger, the COO of Propstore, said: “Horror is always one of the most popular genres in our auctions.
“There’s an amazing amount of workmanship that goes into bringing our worst nightmares to life.
“We have amazing horror pieces in this auction from artists like Doug Beswick and Rick Baker that are true works of art and are amazing to study up close.”
