Monday eBay Roundup (VI): Fox and Unicorn Special

Greetings everyone!

I promised I'd talk more about Fox and Unicorn, and I try to fulfill my promises :) So here it is, and given it's Monday and they are on eBay, what better way to review their stuff than through my weekly Monday roundup?

But first thing first. Who are Fox and Unicorn? Well, I don't speak german (yet!), but I think they are some kind of German prop house. This is their website (not in english):


I do know though that they have a good array of Xena original props, acquired during the Turner Auction. And also that they are very nice with inquiries, so I invite you to contact them if you fancy any of their items!

Talking about items, this is what they have on their eBay store:

- NORSE LEATHER & FLEECE GAUNTLETS


   > Material: Leather. Fleece. Metal.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 279 € / $383.71 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: Nice looking norse style gauntlets. They could come from either Xena or Hercules (this was typical in the Turners Auction - they sold a lot of uncategorized props). Pricey, like all items from the Fox and Unicorn, but they accept offers, which means they are flexible to a certain point.

- STUNT ARROW HARNESS


   > Material: Wood. Leather. Metal. Feathers.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 299.80 € / $412.31 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: This is a very nice prop, that let us see how all the stabbing and arrowing worked on the series. Very interesting to analyze, to say the least!

- AMAZON NECKLACE


   > Material: Cord. Leather. Metal. Seashells.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 69.95 € / $96.20 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: Not my kind of item, but I know a few people who love jewelry and Amazon items, so here it is, just for you guys! More affordable than the previous two, that's for sure.

- ANOTHER AMAZON NECKLACE


   > Material: Leather. Beads. Stones.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 59.95 € / $82.45 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: Another necklace, with a different style. I will omit the "opinion" field in further items like this, there's really no much to say about them.

- ODIN'S DRAGON HORN PROP


   > Character: Odin
   > Material: Horn/Bone. Resin.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 490 € / $673.90 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: Now this is VERY cool! Thanks to my good ally Google Translate we can know what the description says: "Unique - unique piece! Odin's Horn approx 34cm long drinking horn with golden dragon. Made of real horn, the dragon is made from resin artfully. Suitable only for decoration, not for use as a drinking horn" We also know this comes specifically from Odin, which reduces the search to a handful of episodes. I'm thinking it's more likely it comes from Xena, as there are some scenes of Odin feasting at Valhalla. But if you find for sure, please let me know.

- PROP EARRINGS


   > Material: Metal. Beads. Stones.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 49.95 € / $68.70 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

http://www.ebay.com/itm/331105765970

- ANOTHER SET OF PROP EARRINGS


   > Material: Metal.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 59.95 € / $82.45 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

- COMPLETE AMAZON COSTUME


   > Character: Amazon.
   > Material: Leather. Fur. Beads. Metal?
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 1,700 € / $2,338 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: This is interesting as well - a full Amazon costume! It seems to include some jewelry and a mask (which makes me think of the Greek Amazons, as they were the only ones seen with masks). It probably belonged to a background Amazon, most likely unnamed. Cool set, even if we don't know for sure the character.

- AMAZON ARMBAND SET


   > Material: Cord. Leather. Metal. Stones.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 69.95 € / $96.20 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

- MAGE OR HIGH PRIEST HEADPIECE


   > Material: Leather. Metal. Fabric.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 249 € / $342.45 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: Nice looking piece. I think I've seen it somewhere, though I can't place it yet. Anyhow, this looks very Xena-esque or Hercules-esque, they used this kind of pieces A LOT.

- FEMALE? LEATHER ARMOR


   > Material: Leather. Metal. Cord.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 449 € / $617.51 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: Unknown character. They don't say it's an Amazon item here, so I guess it's not. Maybe from the Hordes? Or some other female warrior? Are we sure this is female at all? Anyway, the piece looks nice. Leather crafters at Renaissance Pictures were more artists than artisans!

- FABRIC VEST FROM HERCULES


   > Material: Leather. Metal. Fabric.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 249 € / $342.45 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: This vest seems to come from Hercules (though it looks to me more from Young Hercules than H:TLJ). Description says: "Very high quality fabric, the edges are sewn with genuine leather. The vest can also be with a leather strap lace up front (Not included) Size M - L"

http://www.ebay.com/itm/231072566517

- IPHICLES LEATHER GLOVES


   > Character: Iphicles (Kevin Smith)
   > Material: Leather. Metal. Fabric.
   Papers: Includes Turners COA + A copy of the auction flyer
   Seller: fox-and-unicorn
   Price: 790 € / $1,086.49 plus shipping (or Make Offer)

   > Opinion: The last item are a pair of leather gloves that belonged to Iphicles/King Iphicles aka Hercules Brother, played by Kevin Smith. Quite expensive, surely because they were Kevin's. There are no many Kevin Smith worn props around. Certainly, a little jewel.

    1. Right? They put so much love into details, even in things barely seen. Those people were amazing :)

    1. Thank you. But please, don't do any advertising on the comments or I'll have to delete them. That is not what comments are for. Cheers.
