Hand colored, hand signed   Leave a comment

There are those who don’t care much for hand-colored pictures of vintage movie stars such as Carole Lombard, though it must be acknowledged that the best of them can be incredibly realistic. This portrait of Carole hardly meets such criteria…but it does feature her autograph, which more than makes up for it:

Of course, the next question is, is this the real deal? Let’s take a closer look:

It’s signed “Cordially, Carole Lombard,” a frequent message of hers. It’s in green ink, generally (but not always) her preferred ink color. And the signature appears genuine (the seller says it’s not a reproduction). I deem it legit.

It’s 5.5″ x 7″, in excellent condition, and bidding begins at $125. Sold at that price, it would be a bargain, but since bids don’t close until 10:40 p.m. (Eastern) next Tuesday, expect the final price to be substantially higher.
