    Ingrid Bergman autograph

    £995.00

    Sold out
    • A delightful and historically important autograph from Ingrid Bergman
    • Bergman signs alongside other cast members from the 1956-1957 Paris run of controversial play Thé et Sympathie
    • Displayed in a beautiful wooden frame beneath a striking black and white image of Bergman

    Three-time Oscar winner Ingrid Bergman (1915-1982) is one of the Golden Age’s finest actresses – her natural beauty running counter to the heavily stylised Hollywood glamour of the time. She starred in Casablanca (1942), Gaslight (1944) and Stromboli (1950), the latter directed by Roberto Rosselini. Bergman and Rosselini’s affair and subsequent marriage was the tabloid scandal of the day, and saw the actress blacklisted by the major film studios for the first half of the 1950s.

    Bergman’s 1956-1957 appearance in Thé et Sympathie at the Théâtre de Paris began the same year as her Hollywood return in Anastasia – for which she won her second Best Actress Oscar.

    Thé et Sympathie was the French language version of Robert Anderson’s play Tea and Sympathy, which premiered in 1953 on Broadway.

    The play was radical for its time, discussing sexual orientation and prejudice. It also features one of theatre’s most memorabilia closing lines: "Years from now, when you speak of this, and you will, be kind."

    A beautiful autograph from Ingrid Bergman on a 4.5 x 3.5 inch page mounted in a 22.5 x 14.75 inch wooden frame. One of the finest Bergman signatures you’ll see.

    Beneath Bergman’s autograph are those from her follow cast members – a who’s who of French theatre and film in the 1950s. Names include Bergman’s co-stars Jean-Loup Phillipe and Yves Vincent.

    A true period piece, marking Bergman’s return to popularity in 1956 following the scandal of her love affair.

    Priced to sell – Bergman signed photos routinely auction for more than £1,500 ($2,000).

    J.K Rowling illustrated personal horoscope

    £17,500.00

    Sold out
    • An incredibly rare unpublished work by J.K.Rowling
    • A personal Horoscope with a hand drawn natal chart for Jack David Buchanan, born 19 February 1994, 5.01 p.m.

    J.K Rowling (born 1965) is an English author, screenwriter, producer and philanthropist. She's the creator of the Harry Potter series of children's novels, which to date has sold a record 400 million copies worldwide.

    The seven best-selling books also spawned a series of blockbuster Hollywood movies, video games, several theme park attractions, and an empire of merchandise worth an estimated $25 billion.  

    Aside from her literary career, Rowling has also been praised for her philanthropic work, and has raised tens of millions for good causes including Comic Relief and her own children's charity Lumos.

    Unpublished illustrations and writings by J.K. Rowling are incredibly rare and offer a wonderful insight into the creative mind behind Harry Potter.

    This incredible piece of Rowling memorabilia provides a fascinating example of her prose.

    On white paper, with double-sided typescript on yellow card providing a detailed interpretative reading, including of the sun sign, ascendant, ruling planets, significant conjunctions and oppositions, and their effect on character, personal strengths, possible careers, emotional and erotic characteristics, and compatibility with other signs, and a cover illustration depicting the chart's key astrological symbols in pen, ink, and coloured pencil laid down on bright blue coloured card.

    Comprising 12 loose pages in a plastic folder. In excellent, mint condition.

    "Born the cusp of Aquarius and Pisces. He will enjoy school, perhaps be accident-prone, (like all Pisces) could be prone to alcoholism, and (perhaps like us all) may well fall in love with someone totally incompatible.

    The chart apparently suggests that the boy will have great literary talent ("...the planet of fantasy and imagination meets a sign frequently associated with bookishness...")

    Rowling wonders whether his "ability to weave a good yarn" could perhaps bring fame and fortune, before deciding that becoming a film director would better suit his talents.

    Apparently wishing for some small slice of fame for herself, J.K. Rowling wonders if the boy would perhaps at least mention her in his Oscar acceptance speech ("...This peculiar woman my mother knows predicted I would be standing before you today ... of course, my parents laughed at the time...") ...Human destiny may be deciphered by the planetary rays... (Professor Trelawny)

    It is possible to detect in this short piece some of the characteristics that were shortly to bring Rowling's prose such extraordinary success: a great and varied sense of humour, flights of fancy underpinned by an internal logic, and - of course - a mingling of the everyday world with the strange and magical.

    The horoscopes show Rowling to have a detailed technical knowledge of Western astrology.

    She is at ease explaining the significance of having one's Moon in the First House but peppers her interpretations with quotations and wryly amusing comparisons.

    In general the astrologers that she cites tend to be popular rather than academic.

    Rowling's knowledge of astrology has undoubtedly played into the Harry Potter books.

    Harry himself is a Leo (sharing his birthday with J.K. Rowling herself), whilst the meticulous worrier Hermione is naturally a Virgo.

    An important influence on Harry in the first book is Firenze the centaur, a star-gazer who helps and teaches him before his first encounter with Voldemort.

    Sybill Trelawney, Professor of Divination, makes an appearance in later books; she is considered by many a fraud (and is a fine satire of New Age fortune tellers) but her predictions frequently come true in unexpected ways.

    On a deeper level, an issue that goes to the heart of astrology is the apparent conflict between free will and fate, and this is one of the central themes of the Harry Potter series.

    James Dean Signed Photograph

    £19,500.00

    • A stunning signed photograph of legendary actor James Dean 

    Cultural icon James Dean starred in many films such as Rebel Without a Cause, Giant and East of Eden. The combination of his talent, good looks and tragic death at the tender age of 24 has cemented his legendary status.

    This vintage, glossy, black and white photo shows James Dean sitting on a stool with one hand on his temple. Dean has autographed the photo, which measures 6.5" x 8.25", in blue fountain pen ink, adding the note "To Hana, my very best from (the thinker), James Dean".

    "The thinker" appears to be a reference to Auguste Rodin's sculpture of the same name which depicts a man sitting in a thoughtful pose, with his hand resting on his chin.

    This autographed photograph has some slight creasing and mounting remnants to the reverse but is otherwise in very good condition. It is professionally mounted, framed and glazed using UV glass.

    A rare opportunity to own a beautiful signed photograph of the Hollywood legend.

    • Learn more about this piece here 

    James Dean (1931-1955) was an American actor, who has gone on to become a cultural icon - the ultimate Rebel Without a Cause. Due to his death at an early age, his memorabilia is incredibly rare and valuable, giving rise to the term "The James Dean Effect".

    This is a superb single page from the Fairmount High school yearbook, 1949, measuring approximately 10.4” x 7.7”. featuring photo portraits of 10 of that year's graduating students, including James Byron Dean (1931-1955).

    Signed in pencil underneath his portrait "Jim Dean". Instances of Dean's autograph where he has signed "Jim" instead of "James" are extremely rare. An early autograph from the iconic film star.

    Below his photograph, Dean is described as "our regular basketball guy, and when you're around him - time will fly". The right-hand page edge has some loss where it has been carelessly removed from the book, with some minor loss to the edge of Dean's portrait.

    To make it easy to differentiate between the two coins this new lighter coin was issued with James facing left - the other direction — and wearing a laurel wreath rather than a crown.

    Mansfield began her career as a pin-up model and beauty queen, who posed for Playboy and held titles including Miss Photoflash, Miss Electric Switch and Miss Geiger Counter.

    She later found success on stage, first in local theatre and then on Broadway with a role in play 'Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter?', before being 'discovered' by 20th Century Fox, who saw her as the natural successor to Marilyn Monroe.

    Although her movie career was relatively short-lived, Mansfield had memorable starring roles in films such as The Girl Can't Help It (1956), the screen adaptation of Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957), 'The Wayward Bus' (1957), and Too Hot to Handle (1960).

    She also caused a sensation when she became the first mainstream actress to appear nude in a Hollywood film, with her role in the sexploitation comedy Promises! Promises! (1963).

    In her later years Mansfield made numerous TV appearances, and even appeared in her own Las Vegas striptease review. She was tragically killed along with two other passengers in a car crash in Mississippi in June 1967.

    Jayne Mansfield was one of Hollywood's leading sex symbols in the late 1950s, and was known as one of the original 'blonde bombshells' alongside Marilyn Monroe and Mamie Van Doren.

    In reality Mansfield was a natural brunette, and years having her hair bleached platinum blonde by the studios took their toll.

    From around 1960 until the end of her life, she wore a series of wigs to maintain her public image without damaging her hair any further.

    On the night Mansfield died she was wearing one of those wigs, and gruesome photographs of the accident scene pictured it amongst the wreckage of her car – leading to an urban myth that she had been decapitated in the car crash.

    This custom-made wig was personally owned and worn by Jayne Mansfield during the later years of her life, and was gifted to her close friend Mrs Amanda Holden in 1965.
