Deadstock designer blue 1980’s gown by Alyce Designs

Combining 1980’s  love for asymmetry and royal blue, this deadstock gown by Alyce Designs is in a timeless empire cut with a sheer, diaphanous overlay of what could be called “raining roses”.   The flower motif adds tons of visual interest and glitz for the gown’s intended purpose as formalwear.  As with many of the “true” hues, royal blue looks good with several skin tones and hair colors.    Most of all, this is a unique piece and has never been owned before!  Click here for more views and sizing information.

 

Rare vintage 1962 Seattle World’s Fair t-shirt

Over fifty years later, the Seattle World’s Fair of 1962 continues to fascinate people.  The most famous symbol of the exposition was and is the Space Needle at the heart of Seattle Center, in space-age mid-century architecture, prominently featured on the front of this shirt.  Optimistic, forward-looking images include a fireworks display and the “Century 21 Exposition” symbol.  Classic-cut fitted tee can be paired with jeans, khakis, or shorts and would look pretty smart with a cardigan.   Click here for more views and sizing information.

Rare white 1960’s Langlitz Leathers motorcycle jacket and pants

Made by Portland-based Langlitz Leathers, this is a hard-to-find set of white leather motorcycle jacket and pants.  This family-owned business was started in 1947 by a motorcycle enthusiast and glove-maker who was unhappy with the poor fit of mass-produced jackets.  Thanks to this, Langlitz pieces are individualized pieces made for individual clients and are truly unique.  On top of that, this set is in white and features the “Columbia”-style jacket:   Asymmetrical brass zipper closures with wide fold-over collar,  numerous pockets (please see detailed photos for views), including sleeves that conform to the wearer’s arms.  The jacket and pants are both lined and have adjustable and lace-up features to ensure a good fit, as well as zippers to accommodate boots.  A stunning piece of motorcycle wear and a little piece of one-of-a-kind Portland history!  Please click here for all sizing and photographs.

Large 1960’s ceramic Mexican-made tiger

 

Tyger, tyger, burning bright!  You just gave me quite a fright!  Apologies to William Blake, but the tiger is a fearsome creature indeed.  Long, lanky, slinky, and stealthy, he is forever stopped in the middle of pacing…or is he stalking?  Intense orange-red eyes and open, possibly snarling mouth, he has detailed features, well-rendered legs and huge paws (and this from the owner of two felines) … this creature could make a great impression if placed in the right location.  It’s important to note that this big cat may not be life-size, but he is 40″ from front to back.  That’s a lot of tiger.  Right hind leg bears the “Mexico” stamp; other views and information can be found here.

Never-worn collectible Levi’s sports watch and flashlight with case

 

A truly great example of collectible merchandise!  This electric blue watch with matching blue wristband in gray case with black flashlight was initially produced as a part of a promotional package and has never been worn or used.  Thanks to this, the watch, its informational pamphlet, case, and flashlight with batteries are all present and accounted for.   This is both a great piece for the collector of watches and the collector of Levi’s memorabilia.  More information and views here.

Deadstock 1980’s E.T. shoelaces

 

In a flurry of merchandising, the movie “E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial” produced countless items to tie in with the film’s 1982 release.  These never-worn shoelaces proclaim, “E.T. Lives!”  This bunch of mint-condition laces contains 8 pairs of 27″ laces, perfect for your vintage or modern sneakers.  White background with multicolored lettering and a few planets against a sky-blue background.   Flying bike not included.  More details and pricing here.

Twentieth Century-Fox Camera #6: Extremely rare!

Great news for loves of motion picture history and vintage movie cameras like Bell & Howell, Pathé, and Mitchell!  We are pleased to offer this unique piece of motion picture history, in working order and with many accessories from filters to lenses to camera stands.  Only fourteen to sixteen of these cameras were ever made, and this camera is believed to have filmed such important movies as “Miracle on 34th Street”, “The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit”, “Planet of the Apes”, and “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid”.   Imagine stars like Gregory Peck and Natalie Wood and Charlton Heston hearing the words “look into the camera” and THIS could be that camera!  But we’re getting ahead of ourselves.  First, a little background.

With the transition in 1927 from silent to sound movies, new challenges in sound engineering presented themselves:  Movie cameras were noisy, generating too much noise to get close-up shots without getting clicks and whirrs on the soundtrack.  Initially, the solution was to produce “blimping”, or a housing for the whole camera.  This proved heavy and difficult to maneuver.   And so, in the 1930’s and early 1940’s, an effort was made to reduce camera noise at the source.  The designers of this camera set out to make the parts of the camera themselves lighter, smoother in motion, and the net effect was a camera so quiet that it could be used within two feet of a microphone.   The shape of the camera was also innovative for its day:  Not only are the “magazines” for the film insulated, but the housing of the camera is not a box shape:  It is cylindrical.  It is the first camera to use t-stop and coated lenses, non-radiating lenses, fluid head, 200 degree shutter, just to name a few firsts.  It was the first camera designed to film in Cinemascope, and Bausch & Lomb developed lenses specifically for it.  An experimental model of this camera was produced in the mid-1930’s.   Further cameras were produced in 1940.

This camera comes with documentation and technical articles to attest to its age and innovative design.  There are copies of articles from 1935  describing the development of the camera, as well as articles from 1940 when the camera was introduced to the motion picture industry.  There are also numerous instructions for storage, maintenance, assembly, and operation of the equipment.

In addition to the camera and documentation, there are numerous accessories adding to the uniqueness of this look into cinema history.  Ranging from filters, metal filter holders and screens, adapters, lens paper by Kodak, camera oil, case made in Japan, and much more:  Please see the photos here and inquire with Monster Vintage.  We are happy to answer your questions.
