$ 395.00

An outstanding 1940s robe from the golden age of Hollywood! This novelty print robe was custom made for Gladys Glad, a starlet of the 1930s who married producer Mark Hellinger in 1929 and starred as a Ziegfeld girl in 1931. This robe has a gorgeous line with oversized point lapels, a classic wrap front, and unfitted sleeves with broad cuffs. It's a thin brilliantly hued silk, ankle length, with a right hip pocket and gossamer twill trim. Made between 1936 (when the Regine Brenner lingerie shop opened) and the early 1940s, meticulously finished by hand.
