17 Jun 2009 :
The infamous long green military jacket, worn by Irish actor Liam Neeson in his role as Irish republican leader Michael Collins in the 1996 award winning film of the same name, went under the hammer at Bonham's Knightsbridge auction, in London yesterday.

The lot which was auctioned included the coat with brass buttons still intact, the leather belt, the gun holsters, trousers, boots and a tunic, all of which still bear the actor’s name and the dates of filming. This memorabilia estimated to commence selling for as low as £350 was purchased for £3,120.

Also going under the hammer in the same auction was the leather jacket worn by Pierce Brosnan in ‘Tomorrow Never Dies’. Experts estimated that it was set to fetch between £4000-£6000 and indeed it was sold for £6,000. Also for sale were many other costumes worn in various films by the Irish actor and their combined selling prices fetched over £18,000 in total.

Amongst other items being sold yesterday at Bonhams Auction House in Knightsbridge, London, by international costume house Angel were Dracula’s cape worn by Christopher Lee, outfits belonging to Roger Moore, Heath Ledger, Michael Caine and various other costumes and memorabilia items belonging to films such as ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ ‘Schindler’s List’ and ‘Dr. Who’.

Tom Collins: “For me it's all about the work, which is about creating a reflection of a modern Irish cultural identity that can travel beyond borders, history and these shores.”
