    Early photograph of Rutherford and Lucy Hayes signed

    Rutherford B. Hayes Signed Cabinet Card photograph of the couple posed side-by-side, 4" x 6.25" (sight). In Hayes' hand at bottom: "Rutherford B. & Lucy W Hayes 1852". With a Grob, Fremont, Ohio, photographic stamp. The couple was recently married, and the formal portrait was likely one of their first as man and wife. Lucy sits demurely on his left side, his arm carefully placed behind her. The cabinet card is matted beneath a reproduction of a portrait of Lucy Hayes and framed to an overall size of 7" x 16.25". Together with a small spoon engraved "PH", obtained by our consignor at the same time as the photograph. The spoon is said to have belonged to Lucy Hayes, although we are not able to present any provenance to corroborate.
