Cinematically significant screen-used ring from the final scene of the 1993 Academy Award-winning film Schindler’s List. The ring is inscribed in the inside in Hebrew (translated): “Whoever saves one life, saves the world entire.” Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from the film’s property master, Batia Grafka, which reads, “This is the inscribed ring given to Oskar Schindler by his factory workers during the final scene of Schindler’s List.” Also included is a photocopy of an August 5, 1993, fax between Dave Morino and Tiffany, presenting two different fonts of the ring’s inscription, and asking for a double-check on the spelling. In fine condition.
When Oskar Schindler’s factory workers hear that he must flee, having become a hunted war criminal following the Allied victory, they make him this ring as a token of their appreciation. Presenting it to him and explaining that the inscribed quote is from the Talmud, they convey their deepest gratitude in showing him that by saving them, he has saved humanity. Given to Schindler (played by Liam Neeson) by Itzhak Stern (Ben Kingsley) during one of the finest moments in the groundbreaking, seven-time Academy Award-winning film, this ring represents one of the most remarkable pieces in cinematic history.
