About the Costume

This chair was first seen in the 1950 film Sunset Boulevard in Norma Desmond’s large, ornate mansion. The prop appeared a second time in the 1952 My Cousin Rachel, where the chair appears to have been recovered in a new fabric and trim. Finally, the chair was seen in the 1967 Doctor Doolittle where the legs seemed to have been shortened in order to add castors.

The piece went up for auction in the 20th Century Fox Prop auction of 1971. The auction catalog described it as follows:

William and Mary style walnut wing chair with a scrolling frame and upholstered in early eighteenth century petit point.
