24th November 1998 Entertainment Sale

Exactly twenty years ago TODAY there was a film and entertainment sale at Bonhams.

Being the wilderness years, Doctor Who wasn’t the commodity it is today and there was only one solitary item for sale.

Catalogues in those days were sparse on pictures, so I’ve illustrated it with an image from what I think the item was.
The text in the catalogue spells it Jacondon - it should be Jacondan.

Lot 209 Dr Who
A feathered head-dress of the ‘jacondon’ as worn in the Dr. Who Television series.
Estimate £250-350

Bonhams FLASHBACK: 18th August 1999
Film, Entertainment & Celebrity Autographs

I found this old Bonhams catalogue from 1999 on eBay recently, and it’s got a good selection of costumes and props from a range of eras of Doctor Who.

There are some amazing costumes listed in this sale, many of which haven’t seen the light of day since. It would be amazing to know where they are!
As usual I have separated the items by Doctor era, and you can see the rest of the items here:

Here are just the lots relating to the Sixth Doctor era
