WANTED: Blue beaded Sable dress suit

This is a stunning costume with an equally beautiful sketch.  The suit is covered in bugle beads, accentuated with large iridescent square beads, and comes with a matching veiled hat and dyed blue fur muff.  I love the dramatic and old Hollywood feel of this costume.  It was originally designed for Joan Collins to wear on "Dynasty", but for whatever reason ended up being worn by Stephanie Beacham on "The Colbys".  It is a shame that this piece was not worn on the more prominent show and by the more prominent actress as it was intended.  Based on the actual design, this costume ranks very highly on my list of most beautiful costumes by Nolan, but because it was not worn on Dynasty by Joan it is not higher on my list of pieces I hope to acquire.

WANTED: If anyone has this gown, or any information on its whereabouts, please let me know!
