10 Mar

Gorgeous hand-colored lithograph entitled ‘The Wright brothers ‘Strange Contraption’ rises at Kitty Hawk, 1903,’ 11.75 x 15.75, signed near the bottom of the image in fountain pen, “Orville Wright.” Mounted and framed below the litho are three important flown artifacts, including a swatch of original Kitty Hawk Wright Flyer fabric from Wright Brothers’ employee Harvey D. Geyer; and two turnbuckles from the Curtis ‘Jenny’ and DeHavilland DH-4 presented to Louis P. Christman by Col. Edward Deeds for his work in restoring the 1905 Wright Flyer. All are double-cloth-matted and framed together with a descriptive plaque to an overall size of 22 x 39. In overall fine condition. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
