Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $250.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Business magnate and merchant (1763–1848) who became the first multimillionaire in the United States; Sarah was his only wife, with their nearly 50-year-long marriage ending upon her 1834 passing. Ink signatures, “John Jacob Astor” and “Sarah Astor,” presumably on a pair of off-white 6.25 x 1.5 vellum slips clipped from a document, with a window on the reverse for viewing Sarah’s signature on opposing side. Both documents retain original light blue ribbons and red seals affixed to the right of signatures. Double-matted and framed with a head-and-shoulders portrait of the prominent fur-trader and investor to an overall size of 13.5 x 13.5. In overall fine condition, with some irregular ink adhesion to John’s first name. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
