Description

    "I Love Lucy" Piece of Ethel's Costume. An Ethel Mertz section of leather fringe from her costume worn in the I Love Lucy episode, "The Black Wig" (originally airing on April 19, 1954.) Episode features Lucy and Ethel disguising themselves in costumes and trying to test the boy's fidelity. Ethel's mismatched costume was a combination of a geisha wig, an American Indian dress, and Eskimo jewelry, and Lucy memorably quips, "You look like an ad for a trip around the world!" Some of the fringe along the front of the costume was removed as part of the original dress' restoration in 1995, and it is presented in common with a photograph of Lucy and Ethel in their famous disguises. Vivian Vance was nominated four times as Best Supporting Actress and won an Emmy in 1954 for her role as Ethel Mertz. Authenticated by the world's foremost curators of television artifacts, The Comisar Collection of Beverly Hills.
