'Standing' for a Hollywood Pattern

In the past, we've frequently discussed Hollywood Pattern, a division of Conde Nast which published dress patterns identified with Carole Lombard and other film stars in the 1930s. Now, another fascinating artifact of the company has come up for auction at eBay.



It's a standee, measuring 14" x 22", showing Lombard and Paramount stablemate Claudette Colbert "next to drawings of patterns you can buy that are inspired by their fashion sense," as the seller puts it. I'm guessing it was sent to stores and placed in their fabric section. It's said to be "in good condition with one of the gloves on the drawing missing a piece of the paper and there is some surface dirt. Upper corners are bent but intact."

Bidding opens at $19.99, with the auction scheduled to end at 11:18 a.m. (Eastern) Friday. If you're interested in this relative rarity in Lombardiana, find out more by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/HOLLYWOOD-PATTERNS-Carole-Lombard-Claudette-Colbert-standee/161837944391?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D03967df233db4f9e9d148fefa79a44e3%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D201437057115.

It also turns out that two versions of one Hollywood Pattern (#1307) are being auctioned, although the size 20 has an opening bid of $32, and the size 14 starts at $38. Both auctions end at 2:20 p.m. (Eastern) Oct. 5.
