NEWSFLASH - MAY 26, 1999

 
Prototype '
Road Kill' up for auction on 

 
eBay Auctions

 

The House of Peers, Harmony Ball Company and Martin Perry
presents this rare and unique Treasure Jest in a special charity auction. As a benefit for the tornado victims in Oklahoma, proceeds from the sale will go directly to [
Feed The Children].

Our first offering, the House of Peers is proud to present a prototype version of 'Road Kill.' (TJBB99)

Harmony Kingdom enthusiastically supports the HOP and will be donating additional pieces for charitable fundraising activities.

This intermediate version of Road Kill is the work of artist Peter Calvesbert. As often the case with prototypes, the colors on this piece are exceptionally vivid.

Road Kill, the second introduction in the Black Box series, available through Queen Empress and Royal dealers, was a limited edition of 5,000. As a tribute to the countless victims of road accidents, a group of animals sit on a cloud in heaven, bearing the tire marks of their demise. All have been elevated to angel status and have wings, except for the snake and Peter's visiting mouse. A hedgehog peers out beneath a badger who clutches an exhaust pipe, while another badger holds the tail of a squirrel. The rabbit prepares to detonate a bomb that is inside the box, he seeks revenge on the car -- the instrument of their deaths.

Never released for retail sale, this particular version does not have Princess Diana's registration plate, but instead, an old car number of Peter's.

No names appear on the clouds and the tire tracks are not stained red.

According to Martin, "This was the version that was considered not tasteless enough."
