Charles II’s (Michael York) costume and costume continuity binder from John Hough’s 1989 historical drama The Lady and the Highwayman.
Swashbuckling tale of romance, betrayal, jealousy, banditry, murder, and court intrigue set in the 1660s, during the Restoration to the English throne of King Charles II.
King Charles II wore his costume during the final scenes of the film where he saves Lucius (Hugh Grant) and Panthea (Lysette Anthony). The costume consists of a pair of burgundy trousers with decorative metal button and a Berman’s costumer tag, a beige undercoat with gold thread trim and metal fasteners with a Berman’s tag and a lilac overcoat with decorative metal buttons. The costume continuity is paper with a metal wire binder, magazine clipping and Polaroid® photos featuring Hugh Grant and Michael York, many of which show York wearing the costume. The costume and binder show minimal wear from production use and aging with light wear to the threads of the costume and pages of the binder. The costume and binder remain in an otherwise very good condition.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Ferrous Metals, Paper.
