    Sara Delano Roosevelt: Twice-Signed Portrait. 7.25" x 9.25" photograph mounted on the original photographer's custom folder (Chidnoff of New York), depicting FDR's mother, to whom he was especially close. Inscribed by her: "S. D. Roosevelt, for Richard Tracey 1938. with best wishes/ Mrs. James Roosevelt, mother of the President." The facial resemblance is striking. The consignor's family worked at the White House for three generations and eleven presidents. Deceptively rare.
