|WILLIAM WARE THEISS ORIGINAL CONCEPTUAL DRAWINGS OF STAR TREK BRIDGE TUNICS AND STARFLEET EMBLEMS|
|This historically significant archive features early sketches, notes, and renderings in the hand of original Star Trek costume designer William Ware Theiss relating to the bridge tunic and its corresponding emblems and rank trim. Thought to be the earliest known drawings on what would become television’s most recognizable and celebrated costumes, this lot includes an oversized 18 in. x 24 in. sketch pad page featuring a large, bold sketch of the USS Enterprise bridge tunic and a tentatively drawn in bridge emblem. A second large sketch pad page features handwritten notes and loose sketches of emblems, metals, rank trim, and other ornamentation. Theiss’ handwritten notes such as, “Medals logical progression” document the great thought behind creating the enduring Star Trek costumes. A third smaller sketch thought to be the earliest of the three and perhaps the first of its kind contains crude conceptual doodles and the names of what would forever live on as the command, engineering and science emblems. This lot also includes a vintage Desilu envelope containing a cutting pattern and crudely cut bridge uniform emblems, a swatch of gold metallic rigid material with a bridge uniform rank dash still embedded within, as well as three finished and cut out rank dashes. Acquired directly from the estate of William Ware Theiss.|
