King Ottokar's Sceptre. This time, it is the royal symbol that is being honoured. The royal symbol of Syldavia, a tiny country made up of a few villages and forests, is so small that Tintin has no difficulty in crossing it quickly from one end to the other. It is a precious asset for the Syldavian people and as such it is the object of desire and plots of foreign forces.
The designers have been meticulous in the design and choice of materials when creating this collectible object. The finish, its material and weight/volume ratio, give the impression of being the work of a silversmith. It stands on a resin base. A transparent support allows it to stand upright and ensures its stability. The colour of the base is reminescent of the red velvet on which it stands in the treasure room in Kropow Castle.
