    Description

    Original Liberace Costume Design Sketches. Two original costume design sketches for Liberace, each hand-rendered and colored to illustrate the many detailed aspects of a single stage ensemble. The first sketch is that of a large Faberge Egg set piece that the performer would step out of to reveal his next elaborate costume change. Handwritten notes include "doors lined in quilted satin." The second sketch is that of Liberace in a pink, mauve, and silver fox costume with a long train, stand-up collars and a headdress. The lining is lilac and attached butterflies complete the distinctly Liberace ensemble. The sketches were acquired from his costume designer, Mr. Michael Travis, and each bears his signature. Authenticated by the world's foremost curators of television artifacts, The Comisar Collection of Beverly Hills.
