Harlequin Silk Woman’s Theatrical Costume: C1920 English
Dating from the 1920s, a woman’s yellow and black silk satin female Harlequin theatrical or fancy dress costume.
The ensemble comprises of a dress, decorated with bells and pom-poms, a tricorn hat and a jesters stick made with a Victorian porcelain dolls head.
Also included is a pair of cotton tights which have been dyed to match the costume.
In good antique condition with some wear to the sleeves of the dress, but with no marks or stains that we have found. There are some historic darns in the feet of the tights and the hat is in very good condition.
This would be lovely for display, or as part of a collection or for film and television.
