One of Alfies Hidden Gems...

Sometimes our dealers at Alfies come across the most unique and wonderful items. Whether it's an object with a brilliant design or a rare piece in perfect condition, often it's the history or story behind it which makes it so interesting and desirable. Probably the most magnificent piece at the moment is an original Pablo Picasso suit from Tin Tin Collectables (Stand G38-42). This suit is a stage costume that has been worn during the Moulin Rouge Revue Show in 1924. It was designed by Pablo Picasso and made by the in-house costume department.

The suit is handembroidered on a cotton base.
