Leather Dinar Bag and Dinars

An item I have been hoping to find for awhile! This leather and suede money pouch has a leather drawstring and is nicely made. The dinars are all made of resin and painted a gold color; each of them has a different design. These were a standard throughout all the REN PIC series; the dinar was the currency of the day. I especially like the one with the horsehead on one side; the other side is a roman noble, probably Ceasar.

Piece of Xena's Coffin-The Quest

Here is a very cool prop, it is a piece of Xena's coffin from the episode, "The Quest." This is from the lid of the coffin, which was purchased by a seller in NZ who cut it up for easier shipping to fellow fans. Bummer, wouldn't it have been cool to own the entire lid? Made of wood and foam, it is a flower piece that can be seen multiple times in the Quest. I have created a shadowbox for it and display the piece with a photo from the episode. Background of the shadowbox is lined with a piece of Gabrielle's leather lining fabric from her 6th season bra. Thought it would be neat to line the shadowboxes with fabric scraps as they were also from the set.

Xena's Toy Crossbow-Solstice Carol

Great item, and I was pleased to find it in superb condition. Toy crossbow seen in the Xena Christmas episode. After examining this more closely, it appears to be the toy crossbow used by Xena in this scene. Either way, it's very cool.
