    A Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy Group of Items, Circa 1940s-1950s. Three pieces including: 1) a royal blue terrycloth bath towel monogrammed "KHH" [Katharine Houghton Hepburn] on the lower border 2) a beige terrycloth bath towel monogrammed "SBT" [Spencer Bonaventure Tracy] on the lower border; and 3) a bathrobe, made of maroon satin with a slightly textured pattern, rounded lapels, three front pockets, turned-up cuffs, self-belt, possibly worn by Tracy as he portrayed "Pat Jamieson" in the 1945 MGM romantic comedy co-starring Hepburn and an uncredited Emily Perkins who portrayed the put-upon maid -- or possibly one of Hepburn's robes, but nonetheless saved by Perkins for some special reason.

    From the Estate of Emily Perkins, a movie studio seamstress and bit actress who was also Hepburn's companion for many years.
