A puppet from hit TV series Thunderbirds is expected to raise $16,000 (£10,000) when it goes under the hammer.
The Lady Penelope marionette, one of the lead characters from the 1960s adventure show, will go up for sale at Bonhams auction house in London on 29 June (11).
The 20-inch (50-centimetre) figure features a complicated electronics system in its head, which allows the mouth to move.
Stephanie Connell of auctioneer Bonhams says, "(The puppet is) super-rare and important. This is an original Lady Penelope and there can be few, if any, left."
The model previously belonged to puppet maker Christine Glanville, who died in 1999.
Also up for grabs are Lady Penelope's writing desk, chair and bookcase, which are set to fetch $8,000 (£5,000).
