Item 247 - Hirohito Catalog 413 (Aug 2013)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $1,000.00
Sold Price: $16,203.60 (includes buyer's premium)


An exquisite pair of 5.75 x 8.5 pearl-finish full length formal portraits of Hirohito and Empress Kojun, each beautifully signed in thick black ink in Japanese. Each photo is housed in its original blue leather presentation frame, each with the Imperial Standard along the top, to overall sizes of 7.75 x 10.25. Both the photos are in turn framed (behind plate glass) with two hand-calligraphed cards (stating that the photographs were originally presented to Sir Keith Shann who later presented them to Mr. and Mrs. George St. Heaps) to an overall size of 22.5 x 16.5. In fine condition. Not many signed portraits of Hirohito are available, and photos of this lavish quality even less so. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
