Splendid oversized Edison portrait
Description                           Estimate: $3,000+          

Superlative matte-finish 10.5 x 15.5 bust-length portrait of Edison in a suit and bow tie, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To George F. Morrison, Thos. A. Edison.” The photo was taken circa 1925 by Walter Scott Shinn of New York. Beautifully double-matted and framed to an overall size of 16.5 x 21.5. In fine to very fine condition. Beginning his career at Edison Lamp Works in Harrison, New Jersey, in the summer of 1882, when he was only 15 years old, George F. Morrison spent a lifetime climbing the ranks of General Electric. In 1903, he became the General Manager of all of GE’s plants; he went on to be elected Vice President of General Electric in 1917, and the following year became one of the original members of the Association of Edison Pioneers. An excellent association and one of the finest formal Edison portraits we have encountered. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
