    Description

    George S. Patton, Jr. Photograph Signed "G S Patton Jr.," 7.5" x 9.5". Presented in a 9" x 11" sterling silver standing frame embellished with three stars along the bottom and two sprigs of laurel at the top. The left and right sides each bear five grooves symbolizing stripes. The photograph, by the U.S. Army Signal Corps, depicts Lieutenant General Patton, his binoculars hanging from his neck, his ivory handled revolver at his waist on his right side, with his helmet and shirt collar emblazoned with three stars. Patton was promoted to Lieutenant General (three stars) and placed in command of II Corps on March 6, 1943. He was promoted to temporary four-star general in April 1945. General Patton personally presented this photograph, with the sterling silver frame created especially for him, to friends and admirers. The silver frame is slightly tarnished. There are creases and minute dents on the photograph, most evident at the lower left corner; the signature is superb! An impressive rare photograph, obviously admired by Patton himself, depicting an imposing view of the brilliant and colorful World War II General.
