This wand was placed in the window at Ollivanders. It was made of unknown wood and core and of unknown length. It rested on a purple cushion, the single wand on display in the shop's window.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • It is possible that it was made of olive wood, as the name Ollivander means "he who owns the olive wand."
  • Though a simple wand resting on a purple cushion in the window of Ollivander's Wand Shop, it represents the embodiment of one of the wizarding world's most renowned wandmakers. Some have speculated that it may be linked to the Ollivander family, or even the first Ollivander wand ever crafted, considering that the Ollivander family has been dedicated to wandlore for more than 2000 years.
