RR Auction Duke and Duchess of Windsor Rare Vintage Matte-Finish Photo

RR Auction Duke and Duchess of WindsorRare vintage matte-finish 9.25 x 7.25 portrait of the Duke and Duchess, affixed to a 10.25 x 10.25 onionskin sheet, signed on the sheet in black ink “Edward,” and signed and inscribed “Wallis Windsor, 1947, To Jack.” Also signed in pencil by the photographer, Dorothy Wilding. Photo and sheet are in turn affixed to the original Wilding mount to an overall size of 11 x 14. In fine condition, with light wrinkles and toning to the onionskin sheet. Wilding was one of the most prolific photographers of royalty, and had the honor of photographing the royal family a number of times. Her famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth II was used for postage stamps issued in Great Britain and Canada, and she was the first woman awarded a Royal Warrant to be the official photographer to a King and Queen at their coronation. A wonderful, dignified portrait of the royal couple, and just the second we have offered signed by both the Duke and Duchess. RR Auction COA.
