The Wizard of Oz decorated wool panel from “winkie"

The Wizard of Oz decorated wool panel from “winkie guard” uniform skirt. (MGM, 1939) Arguably the most elaborate and decorative of the many fantastic character costumes designed by Adrian for The Wizard of Oz are the Wicked Witch of the West’s “Winkie Guards”, of which only two complete examples are known to have survived and were sold at the historic 1970 MGM/David Weisz studio auction. Offered here is a 36.5 x 21 in. intact decorated felt hip panel from one of the other less fortunate “Winkie” costumes, from the collection of Hollywood casting and press-agent Marvin Paige, and was one of his greatest and most beloved treasures in his legendary accumulation of 70 years in the business of Hollywood. Constructed of stitched and layered felt, this exceptional artifact from one of the most fanciful films of all time exhibits very faint discoloration, most likely from screen use during the end-segment chase and the “Witch’s” melting scene. Mounted for display in an antique frame (special shipping arrangements will apply). Very good. $1,000 – $1,500
