Traje de luces - Bullfighter (2) - Textiles

Description
Traje de luces - Bullfighter (2) - Textiles
Spain - 1950-1974

Red Traje de Luces with many handmade weavings in gold thread, adorned with sequins, beads and various textile decorative items.

The Traje is composed of Chaquetilla and Chaleco. Without Taleguilla.

It comes from the "Plaza de Toros Acho - Lima" the second oldest arena in the world, where many bullfighters from Spain fought.

It shows typical signs of ageing, considering it’s been used and is approximately 60/70 years old. It probably needs to be accurately cleaned (I was afraid of ruining it and did not perform such cleaning).

Size: Chest: 36 x 47 cm, sleeves ca. 68 x 55 cm
Shipping via private courier with insurance.
