    ORIGINAL FRANK LOESSER ARTWORK..

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

    Includes: 11 x 8 3/4" ink sketch on yellow lined paper of trumpet, book, and peaches on a chess board signed "Frank Loesser drew This and fuck you." Another work by the noted lyricist and composer ("Guys and Dolls") is an 11 x 10" watercolor of three figures on the stairway of a Greek temple, inscribed in pencil on the bottom "Leonard’s longest run–inspired by a Maxfield Parrish-type Rosebud. F. Loesser." (the show referred to was Leonard Sillman’s "New Faces"). A third 8 x 10" portrait sketch in colored pencil is inscribed "Sillman by Loesser". These were given by Loesser to Sillman and bought from his estate.

    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.
