A Rebel trooper vest from George Lucas' Star Wars: A New Hope. The Rebel Alliance wore their vests in various scenes throughout the film, including aboard the Tantive IV corvette while protecting Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and again on Yavin IV, both before the final battle and for the medal ceremony.
Designed by John Mollo and manufactured by A.E. Bickel and Co. - a subcontractor of Bermans and Nathans that provided a wide range of costumes and accessories for the production - this black vest is constructed of a Teredo poly-cotton blend with various pockets and pouches on the front and reverse. In line with Lucas' vision of the Star Wars universe, this vest has no fastenings along the front, and some pockets have tab closures while others have Velcro closures. It is missing its internal label and is fraying along the edges, but the vest remains in excellent overall condition.
Estimate: $6,000 - 8,000
