Larry Hagman Airstream motor home achieves $30,000

Larry Hagmans Airstream motor home led Premiere Props September 28 auction

An Airstream motor home, previously owned by Larry Hagman, was the star lot in Premiere Props sale of television and film memorabilia on September 28, achieving a price of $30,000.

The rare motor-powered Airstream, one of only 50 in existence, was used as a dressing room by Hagman on his return to the set of Dallas in 2012 and features solar panels, a fireplace and two flat screen televisions. The actor played the role of JR Ewing from 1978 until his death last year.

A Chinese porcelain figurine from the set of early sitcom I Love Lucy (1951-1957) was another highlight - selling for $24,000.

The figurine was originally made by Stewart B McCullough at his pottery studios in California in the mid 1940s, and was found in the Desilu Prop Department warehouse by a set designer recreating the apartment from the show for Manhattan Transfer's Bee Blop Blues in the 1980s.

A pair of stockings worn by Marilyn Monroe in the musical Gentlemen Prefer Blondes made $10,200.

The stockings are particularly rare as they are in near perfect condition and feature "M. Monroe no. 769" handwritten on the label. They also feature traces of the gold sparkle makeup that Monroe wore for the role.

We have a range of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia available for purchase, including this high school photograph from 1941.
