    The iconic candy-striped jacket worn by Dick Van Dyke in Disney classic 'Mary Poppins' has been sold for 40,000 pounds.

    The satin-lined jacket, which has Van Dyke's name and 'Western Costume Company' written on an inside label, had been on sale 50 years since the timeless 1964 film, which starred Julie Andrews as a magical nanny who helps unite a dysfunctional British family, the Daily Express reported.

    Van Dyke had played Cockney chimney sweep Bert and his usual dour outfit is transformed for the film's memorable fantasy sequence, which blended actors with animated characters, as the pair sang Jolly Holiday.

    The jacket now belongs to a private collector, who bought the ensemble at an auction house near Los Angeles organised by Profiles in History.

    Joe Maddalena, from Profiles in History, said that the jacket was returned to the Western Costume Company in Hollywood once the filming was finished, and it was a 'miracle' it survived after neing bought by a private collector in the 1993.
