    Description

    Norman Rockwell Group including: Norman Rockwell Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 6" x 8", Stockbridge [Massachusetts], n. d. [circa 1957], to Ginger Fischer urging her, most likely tongue-in-cheek, to "...sue Mr. Blomquist for defamation. To me you are beautiful." It is probable that he is here referring to his art director and friend, Arthur Blomquist. [and:] Norman Rockwell Autograph Letter Signed. One page, 6" x 8", Stockbridge, n. d. [circa 1957], to Ginger Fischer in full: "You're a real friend in need. I thank you and the collector of internal revenue thanks you. If I can ever do a favor for you please let me know. I thank you." [and:] Norman Rockwell Typed Letter Signed. One page, 7.25" x 10", Stockbridge, September 10, 1957, to Ginger Fischer thanking her "...for helping to get the checks out. It was wonderful to get them, and now I won't have to go to jail." He goes on by asking about a recent drawing he needs for correction: "...what I plan to do is instead of just showing more food on the table is to show back of little boy in the foreground, seated at table with head bowed - and will also indicate more food on table." [and:] Norman Rockwell Christmas Sketch. One page, 8.75" x 11.5", n. d. The image, a facsimile sketch, shows Santa Claus dancing with a young lady in front of a Christmas tree. Rockwell has written at the upper right to Ginger Fischer, "Ginger All my love I miss you more and more," above a sketch of a man wearing glasses. At lower right he has written: "Old Mr B. remember me," presumably a reference to Art Blomquist. With original transmittal envelope addressed in Rockwell's hand. All are fine.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
