Original War Horse puppets to auction for charity

A set of five original puppets from the smash hit stage play War Horse will sell at Bonhams London on September 13.

War Horse Bonhams
The puppets are one of a set of eight created for the show

The pieces will auction to raise funds for the Handspring Trust, which designed and built the puppets used in the show.  

Eight sets were made for the production, one of which is now in the permanent collection of the V&A Museum in London.

Giles Peppiatt of Bonhams comments: "War Horse captured hearts round the world including famously that of H.M. The Queen.

"This is a one-off opportunity to acquire a piece of theatrical legend and benefit a great cause."
