Sonja Henie's Tutu!

RSS
You may recall that Tom and Ray have what one listener called "an unhealthy interest in Sonja Henie's tutu."

Well, don't tell the boys, but one of Sonja's tutus surfaced this week at the Antiques Roadshow in Minneapolis! 

Here's the video.  Want to guess how much it's worth?

Watch Appraisal: Sonja Henie Ice Show Costume, ca. 1941 on PBS. See more from Antiques Roadshow.


And here's some footage of Sonja in action. She was an impressive lady, so maybe our hosts are right to be obsessed. Whatever you do, don't tell Tom and Ray about this find. We're afraid they'll put in a bid, and lavender just isn't their color.




More specs on the tutu here.  Thanks to Max for alerting us!
