The magazine calls the glasses associated with Harry Potter “NHS style” in reference to the United Kingdom’s National Health Service. For 114 GBP, they were purchased as a prop before they became famous all over the world. They come from high-profile client Simor Murray, a veteran of the ‘Mission Impossible,’ ‘James Bond,’ and ‘Terminator,’ film series.

On the other hand, this year marked the 25th anniversary of the publication of the first book in the bestselling “Harry Potter” series. Originally published in 1997, “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone” is the first novel in J.K. Rowling’s bestselling Harry Potter series. The Bloomsbury Publishing series quickly rose to the ranks of the all-time greats.
