About the Costume

This brooch, initially seen on Billie Burke as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North in the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz, was later worn by Andrea King as Lillian Russell in the 1947 film My Wild Irish Rose.  

Joseff of Hollywood designed the brooch, and it therefore could have been in use even before its appearance in Oz. It almost certainly appeared in more films after being seen on Andrea King, as the piece was auctioned off – having been turned into a necklace – by Julien’s Auctions in Joseff of Hollywood: Treasures from the Vault, where it ultimately sold for $1,562.50.

The auction described the piece as:

A Georgian-style simulated diamond and pearl necklace, spring clasp closure…Most of the pearl drops have been replaced with tiered strands of simulated diamonds subsequent to use…

The piece can now be seen in the Oz Museum in Kansas.
