    A Mae West Group of Lace Clothing, Circa 1920s-1930s. Four pieces total including: 1) a peignoir made with a bright red silk top and a beige lace bottom hem, hook-and-eye and snap closures on left side; 2) a peignoir made of ivory-colored silk and lace; 3) an 'over dress' with short sleeves made of elaborate beige lace; and 4) an apron-like 'over dress' made of beige lace; all seeming to be from the 1920s or 1930s, possibly worn by West on stage; included with a signed 'Letter of Provenance' from John West, Mae's nephew.
