Murder, She Wrote TV props on display...

Once upon a time, Murder, She Wrote was the longest-running mystery show on TV, which starred Angela Lansbury as 'Jessica Fletcher'.

The character was a retired school teacher, turned best-selling author of mystery novels and an amateur sleuth. Her adventures took place mainly in Jessica's hometown of 'Cabot Cove' or New York, but book tours and visits to friends and relatives took the amateur detective all over the world solving mysteries.

The popular series ran from 1984-1996 and spawned 12 seasons and 264 episodes, plus Angela Lansbury reprised her role for several special television movies in subsequent years.

I'm not a Murder, She Wrote expert but there was an episode in season 11 (11.11, 230) named 'An Egg to die for', where Jessica helps a Russian policeman capture the mastermind behind the theft of a Faberge egg. Maybe this jeweled prop was from that episode.

I'm sure there were countless murder weapons used in crimes throughout the series, but these are just two daggers used as props on display at Universal Studios Hollywood on January 7, 2011.
