Lt Gen Cornwallis (Tom Wilkinson) waistcoat
An original costume used in the production of The Patriot, the 2000 historical war epic starring Mel Gibson and Heath Ledger.
This waistcoat was bespoke made for Tom Wilkinson as Lieutenant General Charles, Lord Cornwallis by leading theatrical tailors Angels The Costumiers. The decorative waistcoat is constructed from cream material with applied gold braiding and crown buttons to the chest and pockets. Lined to the interior the waistcoat features its original Angels label which is hand inscribed 'CORNWALLIS, TOM WILKINSON, SEPT 1999' in pen.
The waistcoat remains is excellent production used condition exhibiting only very minor staining and lacking two of the decorative buttons, otherwise fine.
A fine example of original wardrobe from this well received Academy Award nominated production.
