Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)
Personal gloves and evening bag

An evening bag and white satin gloves belonging to Audrey Hepburn. This dainty envelope style white satin evening purse which is encrusted with seed pearls and lined in white satin belonged to the screen legend. As did this pair of elegant white satin elbow-length evening gloves with two satin buttons at the wrists, which are the hallmark of Audrey’s elegance in such films as Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The purse and gloves were given by Audrey to a friend to wear to a prestigious reception given by the Italian President at The Quirinale Palace while they were filming in Rome in 1960. Also included is a small black and white  photograph of a 2 day old Sean Ferrer sent to the same friend, with Audrey’s own handwriting on the back in the famous green ink she used for her personal writing, and a Swiss newspaper clipping showing Audrey, her husband Mel and baby Sean. Includes a letter of authenticity from the family friend. [PSoL]
