The Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, Auntie Em and the Tin Man all led by this wonderful character named Dorothy," said William Doyle, CEO of Newbridge Silverware. "I feel as if the Wizard himself has given us a gift to share with fans at the Museum of Style Icons. I hope everyone comes out to see the amazing costume that is part of iconic film history".
