JOHN LENNON OWNED AND WORN FABRIC SWATCH DISPLAY. MENDIPS LEAF AND STRAWBERRY FIELD LEAF FRAGMENTS.
WELCOME BEATLES JOHN LENNON FANS! IN 2009, MY DREAM CAME TRUE WHEN I WAS FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO TAKE A TOUR INSIDE OF JOHN LENNONS AUNT MIMI'S HOUSE AND VISIT STRAWBERRY FIELD. WHILE ON THE MENDIPS GROUNDS I PICKED A COUPLE OF LEAVES FROM THE FRONT YARD AND DID THE SAME AT STRAWBERRY FIELD. THOSE LEAVES HAVE BEEN CUT TO MAKE THIS DISPLAY.
Unique 3 1/2inch x 5 3/4 inch by 1 inch thick, clear, lucite holder with graphics of Aunt Mimi's Mendips house and Strawberry Field gate. On the display is a piece of a Mendips yard leaf, Strawberry Field tree leaf, and an actual swatch, of grey liner, from a pair of black trousers/pants worn by John in 1967 (the year Strawberry Fields Forever song was released). Originally acquired in the early 80's directly from Gordon Millings whose father was the owner of Millings & Son tailor shop.This was the famous tailor shop used by the Beatles, many movie stars, and other important music figures. The trousers have the original Millings and Son bevo label and the additional label with hand-written notes with a John Lennon July 1967. After careful inspection and consideration it was determined that a small fragment of material (left by the tailor) could be removed without compromising the integrity of the trousers.
The material was removed from the waist area. The removal was done by a professional seamstress. I have several of these and each swatch of material is a little different, but all will be of equal size. The display also contains an actual film frame from the movie "Imagine" showing a young John holding a puppy. This clothing display is illustrated on page 97 of the 2022 book Psychedelic Walrus.
