Original and quite rare vintage signed ink sketch of Piglet on a light purple 3 x 1.5 clipped slip, signed above the image, “E. H. Shepard.” Slip is affixed to a slightly larger trimmed album page, with a collector’s notation along the top reading, “Artist in Punch.” In fine condition. Shepard began contributing to Punch during World War I and was on the permanent staff from 1921–1953. It was while at the magazine that he was first introduced to A. A. Milne. Shepard sketches of any Pooh characters are quite rare and supremely desirable. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
