    • Click here to read more about this item 

    Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919) was a French artist and leading painter in the development of Impressionism. Today, he is considered among the finest Impressionists and his work continues to sell for outstanding sums at auction.

    Renoir began work as a painter in a porcelain factory in 1854. In 1862, he entered the studio of Gleyre where he formed lasting friendships with Monet, Sisley and Bazille.

    Renoir's art has instant appeal, and the artist freely communicated the joy he took in them. He was once quoted as saying, "Why shouldn't art be pretty? There are enough unpleasant things in the world."

    This superb letter was sent from Pierre-Auguste Renoir to Madame Marguerite Charpentier (who is portrayed in Renoir's "Madame Charpentier with Her Children" in 1886. Written in French, it translates as:

    "The Petit exposition having ended, there remains only for me to thank you...As I hear you are not in Paris, won't you please drop a word to Petit so that he might know if he should bring your paintings or hold it until your return. I am in Brittany in a wonderful place and I am working. A thousand good wishes to Georges and kisses to the children. Your good and sincere friend. Renoir."

    This letter reflects an important time in Renoir's career. Madame Charpentier, who was married to publisher George Charpentier (whose stable of authors included Gustave Flaubert, Emile Zola and the Goncourt brothers), was said to have been extremely pleased with Renoir's painting of her and her children, and used her profound influence among France's creative elite to ensure that it was hung in a prominent spot of the 1879 Salon exhibition.

    She also introduced Renoir to several of her influential friends, which led to major commissions for the artist and helped boost his career. The letter sees Renoir once again thanking Madame Charpentier for her patronage.

    "Petit" is a reference to Georges Petit, an extremely influential Parisian art dealer, who was hugely important in the promotion of Impressionist artists, frequently exhibiting their works in his gallery.

    A review of auction results shows that no other letters from Renoir to his benefactor, Madame Charpentier, have been up for sale in at least 40 years.

    The letter, which is in excellent condition, with some light toning and folding as is typical of documents of this age, is accompanied by a beautiful black and white photograph of Renoir.

    Karol Józef Wojtyła was elected pope in 1978, taking the name John Paul II. He’s regarded as the most popular modern leader of the Catholic Church; celebrated for his conservativism, his work in ending communism and for building bridges with other faith leaders. He was made a saint in 2014.  

    This is a large and rare signed photograph of Pope John Paul II. He’s photographed along with fellow modern saint Mother Teresa.

    To the bottom left is the official Vatican City seal and the words Segretario Particolare di Sua Santita (“Special Secretary of the Supreme Pontiff”).

    The signature is exceptional, in deep blue ink, and stands out beautifully against the white robes. John Paul II signed few signatures and photographs are particularly uncommon. Here he signs his full Latin name "Ioannes Paulus II".

    Pope Pius XII Personally Owned and Worn Skullcap

    £8,950.00

    • A zucchetto skullcap worn by Pope Pius XII
    • Discover more about this item here 

    Pope Pius XII, born Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Pacelli (1867 – 1958) served as head of the Catholic Church from March 1939 until his death in 1958.

    His reign coincided with one of the most turbulent periods in modern European history, including World War II, the Holocaust, post-war reconstruction, the rise of communism and the Cold War.

    Pius XII attempted to serve as a mediator between nations during the war, whilst remaining impartial in the conflict.

    He established the Vatican Information Service, which provided information for the families of thousands of war refugees, and instructed the church to discreetly aid Jews, saving thousands of lives.

    This traditional white zucchetto skullcap was personally owned and worn by Pope Pius XII.

    It is customary for the Pope to offer his skullcap as a gift, if presented with another to replace it.

    Pope Pius XII was the first pontiff in the modern era to start this tradition, and the practice has since been continued by Popes John Paul II, Benedict XVI and Francis.

    In recent years a handful of these rare Pope-worn skullcaps have appeared at auction, with examples selling for thousands of dollars.

    The skullcap measures 6.5" in diameter, and includes the small label inside "[Socie]tas Mariae Reparatricis."

    The skullcap is accompanied by an 'Anticamera Pontificia' card in Italian, signed by Mario Nasalli Rocca di Corneliano as Cameriere Segreto Partecipante di Sua Santita, which reads (translated):

    "The white zucchetto that comes with this card was used by His Holiness Pius XII, reigning."

    In fine condition, with signs of light wear.

    President Abraham Lincoln Bedroom Wallpaper

    £2,950.00

    • Seven fragments of wallpaper from Abraham Lincoln's bedroom in Springfield, Illinois 
    • Get the full story here 

    Abraham Lincoln was elected 16th president of the United States in March 1861, during a time of great upheaval. The big issue of the time was slavery, with Lincoln coming down firmly on the side of abolition.

    In response a confederacy of southern states seceded from the US, sparking a civil war. Lincoln is credited with piloting the Union to victory and ending slavery in North America. Sadly he did not live to see the changes he enacted brought in. He was assassinated as he sat in a theatre box in Washington, DC on April 14, 1865.

    Before he left for Washington, DC in 1861, Lincoln and his family lived at 413 South Eighth Street in Springfield. The house was built by Rev. Charles Dresser who married Abraham and Mary in November 1842.

    Rev. Dresser sold the home to Lincoln in 1844 for $1500. In the mid 1850s, the home was raised to a full story residence. 

    These unique fragments of wallpaper come from Abraham and Mary Lincoln's bedroom at the north end of the second floor. 

    Future custodians of the house included Mrs Lincoln's nephew, Albert S. Edwards and his wife Mrs Mary Edwards Brown.

    Mary removed and kept these wallpaper fragments after redecorating. In 1956 she sold them to Dorothy Kunhardt, daughter of Frederick Hill Meserve. Following Dorothy's death in 1979, her unique collection of Lincoln memorabilia was sold off. 

    The largest fragment here measures approximately 3 x 2.5 inches and the smallest measures approximately 1 x1 inch. It's an exceptional piece of Lincoln memorabilia. If only these walls could talk...

    Dwight D Eisenhower (1890-1969) served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces during the second world war. He ran a bold military campaign and is credited with bringing the conflict to a relatively swift conclusion.  

    After the war Eisenhower moved into politics. The US public elected him 34th President of the United States in 1953. He spent much of his two terms establishing the US as a bulwark against the Soviets. Among his greatest achievements in office were the Civil Rights Act of 1957 and the establishment of NASA.

    This newspaper clipping shows Eisenhower and a member of his staff on an inspection tour of post-war Germany in 1951.  

    Eisenhower’s autograph is large and bold, executed in black ink that has faded to brown with age.

    It’s housed in a large wooden frame, along with an excellent headshot of Eisenhower in his military uniform. A stunning keepsake from one of America’s greatest leaders.

    President George Washington Autographed Lottery Ticket


    • Rare Mountain Road Lottery ticket signed by the young Colonel George Washington
    • One of only 25 known to exist
    • Excellent condition compared to many existing examples

    George Washington (1732-1799) was the first President of the United States and a respected leader who helped steer the course of history during the American Revolutionary War. He is looked upon fondly by Americans as one of the great Founding Fathers.

    At the time of signing, he had recently married Martha and moved with her to Mount Vernon near Alexandria, Virginia. Here, he became one of the richest men in Virginia, living the life of planter and politician.

    He expanded the Mount Vernon estate to an impressive size and began to show more interest in politics, as he presented the Virginia Assembly with legislation to the importation of goods from Great Britain.

    During this time, he was also an active leader of the Virginia social elite, inviting some of the most prominent figures to his estate. He lived the life of an aristocrat, enjoying fox hunting and dances, as well as the theatre, racing and cock fights.

    It is likely that his dislike of British rule began with the Mountain Road Lottery, as during preparations, the British banned all lotteries and his plans were drastically altered.

    Description

    This partially-printed page measures 2 7/8" x 1 3/8" and is in fine condition, with some light staining to the top and lower borders. The 1768 Mountain Road lottery ticket reads:

    1768. This Ticket [No. 173] shall entitle the Possessor to whatever Prize may happen to be drawn against it's [sic] Number in the Mountain Road Lottery

    The document is signed in brown/black ink, Go. Washington. Washington's autograph is particularly fine and demonstrates his flourishing, expressive penmanship.

    A fine filigree-style border design surrounds the text. Its intricate nature was possibly an attempt to avoid forgeries.

    History

    In 1768, a lottery was organised to fund road works in the area of Mountain Road. Improvements were needed in order to access the hot springs of Bath County, reputed to have healing properties. Washington acted as manager of the lottery. His signature on the tickets added credibility to the venture.

    However, the lottery was never completed, as the British banned all lotteries just as tickets were selling. Perhaps this is the very point at which Washington's dislike of British rule began.

    Rarity

    As Washington died over 200 years ago, it can be difficult to find examples of his signature that remain in good condition.

    Being the first President of the United States, and a very popular figure from American history, Washington memorabilia is much sought after by both museums and private collectors. The combination of the lack of good quality Washington memorabilia and the high demand for it makes his signature very rare.

    Comparables

    In 2009, a letter in which Washington argues in support of the adoption of the proposed new Constitution sold for $3,218,500. Another handwritten letter by the Founding Father sold for $834,500 back in 2009.

    As well as handwritten letters, examples of the President's autograph can also sell for significant sums. In 2010, Paul Fraser Collectibles sold an accounts document signed by Washington for £29,950.

    This is a rare opportunity to own a fine example of the first President of the United States' signature

    Charles and Diana’s 1981 wedding was one of the most widely watched TV broadcasts of all time, with billions tuning in from all around the world. Sadly their marriage was not a happy one and ended in a split in 1992. They were divorced in 1996. Diana was tragically killed in a car crash in 1997.

    In the years hence, memorabilia associated with Charles and Diana (and particularly items relating to the wedding) have become highly valuable. Demand has increased following the wedding of their sons Prince William (to Kate Middleton in 2011) and Prince Harry (to Meghan Markle in 2018).

    Charles and Diana wrote this "thank you" letter to Duchy of Cornwall employee Vivien Clifford on October 7, 1981.

    That’s just over two months after the royal couple were married on July 29, 1981. The letter is typed on Buckingham Palace headed paper and signed by both in black pen. Diana has also inscribed "Yours most sincerely".

    It reads: “We would both like to thank you very much indeed for your most kind contribution to the wedding present which the Duchy has given us.

    “We really are delighted with the mahogany library table which will look splendid in our home at Highgrove and is exactly the right period for our house. We were also most touched to receive the balance of the gift in the form of a cheque with which we shall probably buy more furniture. As you can well imagine, with two houses to equip from scratch we have quite a difficult task ahead of us!

    “We have been completely overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity which so many people have shown to us, but, as you will know we have a very special affection for the Duchy and all those who live and work in it and we therefore particularly appreciate your gift. We look forward very much to visiting the Duchy together in the future.”

    The letter is approx. 13 x 8 inches, mounted on thin grey cardboard to an overall size of approx. 14.75 x 9.75 inches.

    Prince William, born 1982, is the son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana and second in line to the throne of the United Kingdom. He served with the RAF for four years from 2009-2013 before taking on his full-time royal duties.  

    A unique Prince William signature on a June 6, 2003 first day cover featuring four stamps bearing his likeness.

    The original owner of this signature acquired it at an event hosted by homeless charity Solas in Newport, South Wales in 2003. Homelessness is a cause close to William’s heart. He attended the event with his father, Prince Charles.

    While there, the owner quietly asked if he wouldn’t mind signing. It’s against royal protocol for the Windsors to autograph personal items, making this a fabulous rarity. It's accompanied by a letter of provenance and a photograph of the prince signing.

  • Princess Diana Typed & Signed Letter

    A typed letter signed and inscribed by Princess Diana on official Buckingham Palace notepaper.

    Princess Diana (July 1, 1961 - August 31, 1997) was the former wife of Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, and the mother of Princes William and Harry.

    Diana was known as "the people's Princess", and was renowned as both a fashion icon and a tireless humanitarian. Her tragic death in August 1997 was met with worldwide mourning, and she remains a much-loved figure to this day.

    Following the official announcement of her engagement to Prince Charles on February 24, 1981, Diana moved out of her flat in Kensington to live at Clarence House until the wedding on July 29.

    Then only 19, Diana had just a few months in which to prepare for life as a Princess, and it was during this remarkable period in her life that she signed this letter.

    As a young child, the consignor of the letter wrote to Diana and invited her to his house for tea, as he thought she would be lonely whilst Prince Charles was overseas.

    Diana was kind enough to personally respond to his letter and her reply, dated May 15th, 1981, reads:

    "Thank you very much for writing me such a lovely letter. It was so good of you to think of me and I am most touched by your kind thought."

    The body of the letter is typed, but is addressed "Dear Stephen" in Diana's own hand, and is signed "Your sincerely, Diana Spencer".

    Following her marriage, Diana never signed her name as "Diana Spencer" again, and the vast majority of pieces bearing her signature are signed simply "Diana".

    The letter comes complete with its original Buckingham Palace envelope, along with a letter of provenance from its original owner.

    A rare early autograph signed by one of the 20th century's most iconic women.

    • A rare signed memento from Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip's historic visit to Canada in 1951

    Queen Elizabeth II is Britain's longest-serving monarch, having reigned for 65 years since ascending the throne in 1952.

    As of October 2016, she also became the world's longest currently reigning monarch and head of state.

    History

    In October 1951, Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip made their historic first visit to Canada.

    With her father King George VI gravely ill, the Princess took his place and led a major royal tour for the first time, just a few months before ascending to the throne herself.

    The Canadian Globe and Mail newspaper reported that "there was that touch of fairytale atmosphere about her arrival", as the couple were greeted by a crowd of 15,000 well-wishers at Montreal Airport.

    With security on high alert, the royal couple were accompanied by security officers and a team of Royal Canadian Mounties wherever they went.

    For the next five weeks they drew record crowds, with millions of people lining streets as the Royal motorcade travelled back and forth across the country.

    According to Life Magazine journalist Allan Michie, Princess Elizabeth "was not prepared for either the size or the warmth or the vociferousness of her welcome, or for a newly experienced familiarity in the approach to royalty."

    Although highly nervous upon her arrival to Canada, the Princess gained confidence throughout the trip, growing comfortably into her role as a future head of state.

    Upon her return to England in November 1951, Elizabeth declared of her Canadian trip:

    "I am sure that nowhere under the sun could one find a land more full of hope, of happiness and of fine, loyal, generous-hearted people."

    "They have placed in our hearts a love for their country and its people which will never grow cold and which will always draw us to their shores."

    The photograph

    This black and white landscape photograph features Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip together with members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.

    Following the five week tour, the members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police that had accompanied the royal couple were invited to London in gratitude for their service.

    The signed photograph was then presented to Assistant Commissioner M.F.E. Anthony during a ceremony at Clarence House.

    The photograph measures 28 x 36cm, and features the signatures "Elizabeth" and "Philip", along with the date "1951" written in the Princess' hand.

    The photograph includes light yellowing to white margins, with a few light stains to verso.

    With protocol stating that members of the royal family do not sign autographs, Queen Elizabeth II's signature remains both highly rare and sought-after by collectors.

    This superb signed photograph recalls a seminal moment in the Queen's life, as she represented her country abroad on a major trip for the first time, marking the beginning of a lifetime of service.

    • A superb Royal family Christmas card signed by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip
    • From 1952, the first year of the Queen's historic reign

    Queen Elizabeth II (1926 -) is the Queen of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms.


    She married her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh (1921 - ) in 1947, and ascended the British throne in 1952.


    She remains Britain's longest-reigning monarch, and at 94 she is also the world's oldest living monarch, and the longest-serving female head of state in recorded world history.


    This beautiful Christmas card was sent out at Christmas in 1952, 10 months after Elizabeth II had ascended the throne but still six months before her official coronation.


    As such, it was the first Christmas card Elizabeth signed as Queen, including the “R” after her signature (which stands for Regina, Latin for Queen).


    The family portrait on the card was also the first to include the young Prince Charles, then aged four, and Princess Anne, aged two.


    The front cover of the card is blank, save for the Queen's embossed Royal crown crest.


    The card is boldly signed by Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip on the left-hand inside panel, with the portrait on the right.


    This card measures approximately 13 x 8 inches when fully opened, with both the signatures and the portrait on display, making it ideal for framing.


    The Christmas card also comes with superb provenance, having been originally presented to a valued employee at Buckingham Palace and passed down through his family for more than 60 years.


    A rare and stunning piece of Royal memorabilia.

    • An exquisite 18k gold ring gifted by Queen Mary to a member of the royal household in 1885

    Queen Mary (1867-1953), also known as Mary of Teck, was the wife of King George V, who reigned in the United Kingdom from 1910 to 1936.

    Queen Mary was the grandmother of Elizabeth II, and mentored her during the present Queen’s formative years. Mary was also the great grandmother of Prince Charles, who called her “Gan Gan,” a name today affectionally used by the current Prince George for the Queen. 

    Mary married the then Prince George in 1893, her second cousin once removed. She had initially been engaged to his elder brother, Prince Albert, prior to Albert’s death from influenza in 1892.  (Queen Victoria had long been an admirer of the young Mary).

    Known as an occasionally stern yet often kind and humorous woman, Mary was born into the minor royal Teck family, and grew up in the UK.

    In 1885, aged just 18, Queen Mary gifted the 18k gold ring to a member of the royal household.

    Inscribed on the inner: “From HRH Princess Mary Xmas 1885”.

    The hallmarks on the inner ring reveal it was likely made by renowned silver and goldsmith Samuel Whitford in London in 1879.

    Superb provenance: consigned to us by the recipient’s great grandson. The recipient accompanied the Tecks on several royal overseas tours.

    The Teck family traditionally presented Christmas presents of this magnitude to their senior domestic staff.

    Jewellery from the British royal memorabilia seldom appears as auction. As such, this is a rare opportunity to own an intimate piece of the royal story.

    Weight: 7.4 grams, giving an approximate gold value of £250 as of April 2020.

    2.5 cm in diameter. Very good condition for its age.

    Queen Victoria Authentic Strand of Hair

    • An authentic strand of hair from Queen Victoria (1837-1901)

    Few British rulers have cast as long a shadow as Queen Victoria. Her reign lasted 63 years, which stood as the record up until great-granddaughter Elizabeth II surpassed her in 2015.

    Britain was at the very height of its wealth and power during the Victorian era. Its colonies covered almost a third of the world’s land mass, making up the largest empire in history.

    Queen Victoria married her beloved husband Albert in 1840. His sudden death in 1861 at the age of 42 was a blow from which she never recovered. She remained in mourning black for the rest of her days.

    This is an authentic half inch strand of hair from Queen Victoria, one of Britain’s most iconic rulers and a key figure in world history. 

    It comes presented on an 8 x 5.75 inch display card, perfect for framing.

    The framed lock it originates from was taken when the queen was just a young girl. It was discovered in an antiques store in Hemel Hempstead in the mid-1960s. Very few specimens of Victoria's hair have ever been offered for sale. 

    A fabulously rare display piece.
