    J. K. Rowling's Designer Handbag From the Premiere of Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone (2001). When J. K. Rowling attended the premiere of the first Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Sorceror's Stone, she carried this simple, elegant Rodo clutch. A few years later, the author donated the purse to a charity auction benefiting the Women's Fund for Scotland. She was one of many celebrities contributing to the event October 6, 2006. Scarlett Johansson, Beyoncê, Liz Hurley, Annie Lennox, Patsy Kensit, KT Tunstall, and Nicky Hilton were among others.
    Rodo is a fashion designer based in Florence, Italy, founded in 1956 by Romualdo Dori. It's known for high-end luxury fashion accessories - clutches, evening bags, and shoes. Celebrities are known to carry Rodos on the red carpet.
    Included here with the 4.5" x 3.5" x 2.5" clutch, which bears a step cut glass stone, is a framed 2" x 3" color photo of Rowling holding the purse, a program for the event (Handbag Heaven), an 11" x 9" framed article about the event, a handwritten thank you note from one of the event organizers to the original winning bidder, and additional documentation about the charity event.
    A special bonus in this offering is a 9" x 12" bookstore counter display and letter from the publisher for Harry Potter and the Doomspell Tournament, the original working title of what became the fourth movie in the franchise, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
