Rare 1960s Emilio Pucci MCA EMKA Hollywood Scarf
This is a rare and collectible Emilio Pucci scarf from the 1960s. It was a special commission from MCA/EMKA. In 1948 MCA (Music Corporation of America) bought Parmount's catalog of sound movies released prior to December 1, 1949 for $50 million. They bought these movies with the intent of selling them to television studios. MCA set up EMKA, Limited with the sole function of overseeing this film library. The scarf is a celebration of MCA's deal with Paramount. It features a star border with the names of Paramount movie stars in them. The body of the scarf is filled with names of Paramount movie titles. Each of the four corners of the scarf features a star with something written in it. One corner has a star with "Designed for MCA by Emilio" written in it; one corner has a star with MCA written in it; one has a star with 'Emilio' written in it; and one corner has a star with 'EMKA ltd.' written in it. The scarf is beautifully designed and rare but it does have some condition issues. Because the print is so busy these flaws are not very noticeable. The issues are: a run (see photo #?), a stain (see photos #? and #?), and a small hole (see photo #?). Such a fun scarf for the Pucci collector or Hollywood person. Would also be so fun framed!
