Product Description

A wonderful barrister wig & gown…

Dating to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1930s, this is an original collection from a working barrister. We are relighted to own this set, which shows its age and authenticity. Featuring the original courtroom wig and gown, the set is complemented with the ‘tin wig case’ and the original bag for the gown. Quite a rare thing to see all of these pieces together in their original condition

The wig is in nice shape, and it sits perfectly in its original Black tin. The naively embroidered label depicting the owner is quite charming, and this follows through to the gown and the bag which shows similar references. The gown is in nice shape, albeit a little tatty. This would be a cool collection displayed on a mannequin (like pictured), or it could even double up as a cool fancy dress costume or be used as part of a theatrical production…

We are offering these pieces in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and abrasions across all of the pieces and they of course show their age, being tatty and a little dirty in places. The wig tin is dented, but works perfectly and the embroidered Red bag shows signs of age. We feel the current condition of all of the pieces simply shows their charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
