Uniquely framed with the same wood used to house her handmade carpet

Description

Uncommon matte-finish 6.25 x 8.25 photo of Mary wearing her priceless jewels, affixed to its original 9 x 12.5 mount, signed on the mount in fountain pen, “Mary R, 1950.” Also signed at the top in pencil by the photographer, Henry Wrightson. Wonderfully framed to an overall size of 12 x 15.5, engraved on the reverse, “Made from the same wood used for the chest for H. M. Queen Mary’s carpet, 1950.” The frame’s backing opens to reveal a letter from Queen Mary’s private secretary, dated April 19, 1950, transmitting the signed photo to the craftsman who made the carpet’s chest. In fine condition. Accompanied by photos of the carpet and chest, and a magazine article describing the carpet’s history. Queen Mary herself produced a handmade carpet measuring over 6 x 10 feet, with the intention of selling it as a contribution to the country’s dollar export drive. A unique piece of royal history. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
