  Potter prop makes over 17,000 at auction
Updated 18 March 2002, 17.04

A massive 19th century globe which featured in film favourite Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone has sold for 17,750 at an auction.

It was expected to sell for around 12,000, but it turned out to be the fifth biggest seller of the whole auction at Sotheby's on Friday.

How many galleons?

Fact File
What else was sold?
Crystal ball from Harry Potter: sold for 1,320
19th Century clock from Tomb Raider: sold for 2,400
Three stuffed fish from 101 Dalmatians: sold for 504

The spinning globe, which was made in Edinburgh out of papier mache, was among loads of other cool props on sale from films like Tomb Raider and 101 Dalmatians.

You may have seen the globe in the movie's library scenes where Harry, Ron and Hermione are trying to find out who Nicholas Flamel is.


It's also popped up in other films like The Secret Garden in 1993.

And the scales which you would have spotted at Gringott's Bank in Diagon Alley fetched 108.

We just wonder how much that is in galleons, sickles and knuts!
