Description  

TLS signed “Yours sincerely, Winston S. Churchill,” one page, 6.75 x 8.5, personal Hyde Park Gate letterhead [struck through and replaced with a typed French address], October 14, 1955. Letter to Swiss paint manufacturer Willy Sax. In full: “Thank you so much for the excellent wine which you sent me. It was indeed kind of you. It was very nice to see you again, and to see your friends.” At the top, Churchill also penned, “My dear Sax.” Attractively double-matted and framed with the original mailing envelope and a small portrait to an overall size of 20 x 17. In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds. Churchill, an avid painter himself, seems to have been introduced to Sax in the 1940s and wrote to him until Sax passed in 1964. In their correspondence, Churchill ordered paints, asked for advice about technical aspects of paints and painting, and exchanged cordial pleasantries. A fine association with the important politician’s famous hobby. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
