    Four Quo Vadis Costume Designs (1951). Four colored costume designs, three measuring approximately 12.25" x 19", and one measuring 15" x 22". The three smaller designs are of female banqueters, dressed in yellow, lavender, and blue. The larger design is for one of Nahreeb's Personal Guard, and includes a sample of metal accent to be used in the costume. The design of the "Lady at Banquet" dressed in blue has been matted to the total size of 17.5" x 23.5". Each show general signs of wear and toning. Some areas of soiling, along with small tears and paper loss at edges. Very Good condition.

    The costume designer was Herschel McCoy, and the film was nominated for an Oscar in Best Costume Design. Other Quo Vadis costume designs are housed in the LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) Collection.
