A remarkable pairing of the Spirit of St. Louis and its legendary aviator
Description  

Exceptional set of items: first is a gorgeous matte-finish 8 x 11 formal portrait of the aviator in a handsome suit and tie, signed and inscribed in fountain pen just two weeks after his historic transatlantic flight, “To George Wingay, With best wishes, Charles A. Lindbergh, June 3, 1927.” Photographer’s notations in the lower border read: “7 rue Dumont d’Urville G. L. Manuel Freres.” Second is a small .5 x .25 swatch of fabric from the skin of his iconic airplane, the Spirit of St. Louis. Wonderfully double-matted and framed together with two engraved plaques to an overall size of 25 x 21. In overall fine condition, with somewhat light contrast to signature against his dark jacket. Upon his arrival in Paris on May 21, Lindbergh was received with unprecedented adulation and hailed an international hero. He remained in Europe for two weeks, making a series of brief flights and attending countless events in his honor, before beginning his trip back to the US on June 4. Signed on his final day in Paris, and accompanied by a piece of the plane that carried him across the Atlantic, this is a phenomenal piece of aviation history. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
