    ELEANORA DUSE’S PERSONAL PEN!.

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

    This 7 1/2" Venetian glass pen (late 19th-century), incorporating entwined spirals of gold dust and applied yellow and blue squiggles, was the property of Eleanora Duse. It came from the collection of Eva LaGallienne who wrote "A Mystic in the Theatre" which chronicles her friendship with Duse. Very unusual and in perfect condition.


    ‡ The owner placed a late bid on this unreserved lot and repurchased it, subject to applicable commission.

    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.
