    British Virgin Islands 1883 (28 Feb) colour scheme proofs

    £3,950.00

    British Virgin Islands 1883 (28 Feb) colour scheme proofs (160 x 215mm, headed "Appendix" in miniature sheet and with handstamped date at upper right) submitted by De La Rue to the Crown Agents in response to an order for a new ½d value. The problem was that the current 1d keyplate was already in emerald-green (SG24), although "green" was now the international colour for a ½d stamp.

    To illustrate this, De La Rue affixed the current 1d (SG24) and 2½d (SG25) in the upper line, and IMPERFORATE ½d colour trials, watermark CA, in blue, carmine and green, below each item handstamped "CANCELLED" (type D7). In the event, the first printing of the ½d was in yellow, but the universal colours were adopted for the  ½d (green), 1d (carmine) and 2½d (blue) later in 1883-84. A unique and beautiful document with fantastic provenance, ex. J.L. Fredrick and De La Rue archives (The De La Rue Collection p.6506).

    Buddy Holly Employment Application Form

    For Sale: £795.00

    Rock and roll legend, Buddy Holly was born Charles Hardin Holley in 1936. His music is said to have inspired the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan.

    Holley signed to Decca Records in 1956. His name was misspelled “Holly” on the contract and Buddy adopted this misspelt version of his name for his music career.

    Just four years after signing his first record contract, on February 3 1959, Buddy Holly died in a plane crash with fellow rock ‘n’ roll musicians Ritchie Valens and J.P. “The Big Bopper” Richardson. This date is often referred to as “The Day the Music Died”.

    This is an application form for employment at The Texas & Texas Company measuring 11” x 8.5”. The form features some light staining and scuffing to the edges but otherwise in fantastic condition, especially considering its age.

    Buddy Holly has printed his name “HOLLEY, CHARLES, BUDDY” in black ink but has failed to fill in any other information including position desired, address, details of education and practical experience.

    Holly’s love of music was apparent from a very young age and at the age of just 5 he won a talent contest singing Have You Ever Gone Sailing (Down the River of Memories). It was most likely his aspirations of becoming a professional musician that prevented him from applying to this job.

    An unusual piece of personal memorabilia from a pioneer of rock ‘n’ roll.

    Café Chambord Guest Book Signed by Stars of the 1940s

    £3,500.00

    Sold out
    • A 1940s-era guest book from the famous Café Chambord in New York, signed by its celebrity clientele 
    • Signatures include Hollywood stars such as Alfred Hitchcock, Gene Kelly, Ingrid Bergman and Natalie Wood

    The Café Chambord was a New York restaurant famous for its French haute cuisine, and an intimate atmosphere which attracted celebrity diners.

    The restaurant was established in 1936 by Roger Chauveron, who began his cooking career in Paris at the age of 12 and immigrated to the U.S in 1924.

    Unlike many of the city's most glamorous restaurants, the Café Chambord was simply-decorated with a rustic charm, and a glass wall which allowed diners to watch their food being prepared in the kitchen.

    It was renowned for serving simple French country cooking, and first became popular with wealthy European emigrants fleeing the Nazis during the late 1930s.

    As its reputation grew, it became a destination for sophisticated diners and celebrities alike - although rarely appeared in the society gossip columns, and remained a place to escape from the spotlight for the evening.

    Chauveron sold the restaurant in 1950, and having moved from its original location on Third Avenue in 1963, the Café Chambord eventually closed its doors in August 1964.

    This Café Chambord guest book includes numerous signatures, with entries dating from October 12, 1944 until June 3, 1948.

    Notable autographs include Alfred Hitchcock, who signed alongside a sketch of his famous profile; Gene Kelly; Ingrid Bergman; Edward G. Robinson; Natalie Wood; Mary Pickford; Alan Ladd; Olivia de Havilland; Charles Coburn; heavyweight boxing champion Jack Dempsey; and film producer Michael Todd.

    A superb set of autographs from Hollywood's Golden Age, and an evocative piece of New York history.

    A fantastic and difficult to assemble collection of the earliest Registration stamps from Canada (2c, 5c and 8c) in fine quality blocks of four, the 2c and 8c blocks as marginal examples.

    Canada Registration stamps 2c orange marginal block of four from the foot of the sheet, SGR1. Large part Montreal imprint, large part original gum; one stamp with a tiny corner crease and some oxidisation on gum though remains of fine appearance.

    Canada Registration stamps 5c dull sea-green block of four, SGR7a. Fresh unused with large part original gum, the lower pair being unmounted mint. The upper pair each with a tiny thin speck, otherwise fine and an attractive multiple of this scarce shade.

    The SG catalogue price for single example of all 12 stamps comes to a total value of £2,750. Consequently, the offer price of £1,950 is exceedingly attractive, particularly when factoring in the expected premium valuation associated with rarer blocks of four.
