Bob Dylan's 'Last Waltz' jacket is priced £4,000

A number of exceptional film, television and music props are adding glamour to saleroom at Cameo Fine Art Auctioneers on May 23.

Among the starring lots is a leather jacket from 1978, owned by none other than the folk and rock 'n' roll legend Bob Dylan himself.

Labelled Jackson The Tailor, the jacket was worn by Dylan in director Martin Scorsese's 1978 film The Last Waltz, documenting the final concert of Dylan's sometime backing group, The Band.

According to Cameo, the jacket was donated by Dylan to the Woodstock Cooperative and comes with a signed letter of authenticity from former The Band member Rick Danko, from 1994.

The jacket is estimated at £3,000-4,000.

Footage of Dylan performing in the jacket can be seen in the below cinematic trailer for The Last Waltz - watch closely and he crops up a various times during the clip.

Cameo's auction will take place in Reading, Berkshire, UK.


 

Elsewhere on the collector's market, a one-of-a-kind Dylan autograph is also for sale, signed on the printed lyrics for On The Road Again, a track from Dylan's 1965 album Bringing it All Back Home.

Dylan is one of the world's most sought after signatures. It is doubly rare to find his autograph on his own sheet music.
