search for 20 years and NEVER find an equally Exquisite Original Thomas
Edison photo SIGNED.
And if the spectacular beauty of
this piece isn't enough the value is even more enhanced due to WHO it
Signed for. This Beautiful signed Photograph of Thomas A. Edison is to the
Famous Opera singer OdetteLe Fontenay who made cylinders and
diamond discs for Edison. She recorded for Edison around 1916, and the
photo and frame are indeed from that era. The Edison
signature is simply stunning. Dark , bold, vintage, and his patented
flamboyant flourish on the "T".
You can actually listen to this
ORIGINAL Edison OdetteLe Fontenay recording and hear her incredible
soprano from nearly 90 years ago. Just click on below link.
Just type in "Fontenay" in the search box will bring
you to the recordings.
The Original frame has NEVER been
opened. So the autograph has been protected and preserved for about
90 years. The original owners displayed away from light so the signature
has maintained a strikingly bold vintage appearance. The 75 y.o.
gentlemen I acquired this from bought it from an Edison Dealer in 1953 and
hence owned it for 53 years. Excellent condition. Measures about 10
1/2 by 12 1/2 inches. We searched to find one comparable but could
only find one that we don't think is even close. Ironically their price
is more then DOUBLE ours.
Here is the link to theirs.
GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC FOR LIFE
