The price went under the hammer for $4,085,000 according to Bonhams auction house. The winning bid was over the phone.
The black figurine is one of two known statuettes made for the film, but the only one confirmed by Warner Brothers’ archives as having appeared in it, Bonhams said. It has a Warner Brothers inventory number etched into the base and bears the name of the movie, which starred Humphrey Bogart as private detective Sam Spade.
In the film, the statuette is a “priceless” work of art, which is the cause of several murders, and at one point changes hands for $10,000.
