    Description

    A Mae West Set of Invoices from Max Factor & Co., 1932. Both dated "August 19, 1932," both noting the star's name and her address at the Ravenswood apartments on Rossmore Avenue in Los Angeles, one noting that West bought a "Hairlace wig" for "$125.00" -- a huge amount of money at the height of the Great Depression; these receipts most interesting as they date from the first year West came to live in Los Angeles where she found an apartment right down the street from her employer, Paramount Studios, and where she lived the rest of her life -- the next 48 years; included with a signed 'Letter of Provenance' from John West, Mae's nephew. (Please note both documents are somewhat creased due to age.)
    11" x 8 1/2" and 8 1/2" x 5 1/2"
