    HERE’S LOOKING AT YOU!.

    Please note: Autographs from the Leonard Finger collection have not been autenticated by Spence/Grad but we believe these autographs to be as stated.

    Collection of seven pocket and hand mirrors. Two examples have paper labels "Souvenir from the Universal Theatres Concession Co. Chicago." (smaller one faded) Three have Art Nouveau designs and were issued for: "300th Performance Wine, Women, and Song Circle Theatre N.Y.C.", Bustanoby Freres Cafe des Beaux Arts in NY, "100th time Fantana" (sterling silver with ultra-high relief design). A celluloid pocket mirror is stamped "Pol’s Grand Theatre" and the largest, at 8" long, has a paper insert inscribed "100th Time Elsie Janis ‘The Vanderbilt Cup’ Broadway Theatre April 9th 1906" (several fox marks, but a very early automobile racing related item!)

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
