Description

    Marian Marsh's Black Evening Gown with Portrait. A floor-length custom-made evening gown owned and worn by Marian Marsh. The black, open-back dress was one of Marsh's favorites and can be seen in press photos and studio portraits, like the original photos accompanying this lot. Marsh also saved a press clipping from a 1934 L.A. Examiner mentioning her appearance in this particular dress. The ornate gold beadwork is stunning, befitting a young starlet in the '30s, and can be seen in detail in the 11" x 14" studio portrait taken by Hollywood photographer Bruno. In Very Fine condition with a few beads missing from the wrist areas of the dress and corner wear to the large photo. From the Marian Marsh Archive.
