BBC's The Office memorabilia to be auctioned
Gorringes are to offer two lots of memorabilia relating to Ricky Gervais' and Stephen Merchant's iconic BBC comedy series 'The Office' in our 26th September sale.
The owner of these items was on the production team for all 14 episodes of The Office including the pilot episode filmed in February 2000 and the two Christmas Specials.
The first lot includes two props used in the filming of Series Two of The Office - a large quantity of 'Wernham Hogg' headed paper and one of David Brent's ties as worn by Ricky Gervais in Episode Two 'Appraisals', together with a BBC Costume & Wigs department bag.

The second lot includes a pilot episode shooting script which was signed and inscribed during the filming of the first of the Christmas Specials by the actors Ricky Gervais, Stephen Merchant, Martin Freeman, Mackenzie Crook, Ewen MacIntosh, Emma Manton, Ben Bradshaw and the producer Ash Atalla, together with two shooting scripts for the two Christmas specials of The Office and an invitation to an early screening. 'The Office' pilot episode script is particularly rare as nobody knew if the programme would be recommissioned at the time and largely discarded their copies.
Both lots will be included in our Autumn Fine Sale on 26th September 2017, with an auction estimate of £200 - £300 for each lot.
