‘SILVER’ BLADE

John Silver, the villain of the classic novel Treasure Island began as a lowly sailor, opportunist and thief 20 years earlier in the Starz pirate epic Black Sails. A lousy cook with a good memory, Silver (played by Luke Arnold) was gifted in the art of self-preservation but ultimately discovers his inner hero – along with a quest for gold – though it costs him his leg. VIP Fan Auctions is offering the dagger of this legendary figure. Used on-screen in the fourth season of Black Sails, the prop dagger is more than 15 inches long and designed for authenticity.

SILVER-TONGUED DEVIL

The legend of Long John Silver extends well beyond his iconic role in Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Treasure Island – he has a parrot called Captain Flint and walks with a peg leg, among other features with origins in Black Sails – and he is no less cunning and colorful than in the novel’s television precursor. Beginning his pirate career aboard Captain Flint’s (the human, not the parrot) Walrus ship as an imposter cook, Silver continues to use his charm, lies, cowardice, intelligence and selfishness to benefit the person he cares most about: himself. VIP Fan Auctions is now offering fans of Black Sails (or pirate lore, in general) an opportunity to claim John Silver’s spyglass (pictured above), which is featured on-screen in the third season of Black Sails. The spyglass, created specifically for the Starz epic, is constructed of metal and leather – and the only one of its kind received from production.

O CAPTAIN! MY CAPTAIN!

Created by Robert Louis Stevenson in 1881, Captain James Flint experienced a resurgence more than a century later when Black Sails dropped anchor on Starz. As charismatic as he is brutal, Captain Flint is the most feared pirate of the Caribbean. Set 20 years before the events of the classic novel Treasure Island, Black Sails will lower its flag after its upcoming fourth and final season, but not before VIP Fan Auctions gives fans of the epic adventure an opportunity to claim a piece of series for themselves – including the signature black coat worn on-screen by Captain Flint (played by Toby Stephens) during the second and third seasons. The leather coat (pictured above) is a remarkable piece of custom tailoring, created specifically for the captain – but destined for the Black Sails fan who casts the winning bid.
