Vintage 1930s 1940s Hollywood Costume Toreador Pants
This comes from an enormous collection of Old Hollywood Movie Costumes I was lucky enough to stumble across. More about those later after the measurements so please read on...
Stunning trousers in purple heavily embellished and embroidered. I believe these are Spanish Toreador pants and they look, feel and burn test like silk. Meant to be about knee length. Hook and eyes at the side. High and wide waistband decorated with buttons. My best guess as to age of this is 30s or 40s. There is a label inside that reads: United Costumers Inc, and there is handwritten notes on it but I can't make them out. There is also what looks like a stamp on the inside of the waistband that says 33 United. There are more hook and eyes at the bottom of the pant cuffs. Fully lined. The embellishments on these do add some weight. Shipping reflects this. Excellent vintage condition. I'm pleased to be able to report there are very few issues with these, since most of the costumes om this collection have fairly significant issues. These are really quite clean and I haven't found any tears or holes. The only things worth noting are some of the bead embellishments are broken or missing. But one hardly notices those amongst all the rest. Oh and one eye on the side row of hook and eyes is missing. Please note that all items in this Costume section may have minor other flaws ( or example; missing snaps, small areas of loose seams, pinholes, etc..) that I have not listed as its just not possible to find and or list every minor thing as these have lived quite a life! Priced accordingly, As Is and Final Sale.
Measurements taken lying flat. Doubled at waist, and hip. Waist: 34" Hip: 42' Hip to bottom hem: 29"
PLEASE READ: I acquired an absolutely enormous collection of Hollywood movie costumes. Ranging across the board from Paramount, Universal, Unified Costumers and more. The last known film much of the items were used in was Lawrence of Arabia but we have no way of knowing which ones and there are others from other films. Most likely they were used on extras or smaller roles, I have not come across anything I can pinpoint to a major name from that film. Many of these were made much earlier, and I have found dates written on tags within from as early as the 1940s, though I believe some are even earlier. I have given as much information as I can about each item in the listing. Much has been lost to time however. That said, these are an extraordinary piece of movie history and I'm honored to be a part of it all.
Please note: These are vintage, preworn and/or preloved items. I do my best to list any issues, but signs of wear should be expected. Please feel free to convo me with any questions. I'm truly happy to help in any way possible and I'm always up for a chat. Any accessories shown, including crinolines, are for display only, not included unless otherwise stated.
