    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Star-Shaped Light Fixture, 1962. Triangular-shaped panels made of opaque white glass, solidified within a metal frame, one portion opens to reveal the socket for a light bulb, electrical cord still attached but is cut so piece is not in working condition; evidently one of the many items Monroe famously purchased down in Mexico to furnish her new Spanish-style home in Brentwood; light fixture was later purchased by the current owner in 1964 directly from Dr. Gilbert Nunez who bought Monroe's house after her death; included with a letter from the current owner stating in part that the Nunez family told her that "Marilyn had this piece hanging in the corner of one of the rooms." (Please note this fixture needs re-wiring and its metal frame is rusted due to age.)
    12" x 12" x 12"

    The grainy color snapshot showing this light fixture in Monroe's home is believed to have been taken by Eunice Murray [Monroe's weird housekeeper] who was helping the star with purchases for the home and with interior decoration.
