Wayne's personal, Western-themed tie holder, previously owned by his makeup man.
Ephemera unsigned. Wooden tie holder (4½x6½), with a carved golden image of a man on a bucking horse, from which extend six silver metallic holders. Accompanied by letter of authenticity from collector Claire Gaynor, attesting that he obtained this item personally from Gordon Bau, famous Hollywood makeup artist who worked with Wayne on such films as Operation Pacific (1951) and Rio Bravo (1959). All-American action hero John Wayne appeared in over 250 films, primarily in war movies and Westerns. Although Wayne had already appeared in nearly 80 films, it was John Ford's Stagecoach (1939) which made him into a major star. Near the end of his forty-year career, Wayne was honored with his first Best Actor Academy Award for his portrayal of hard-drinking, one-eyed Marshal Rooster Cogburn in 1969's True Grit. Fine condition.
