Item 38 - John and Jacqueline Kennedy Signed Photograph Catalog 539 (Nov 2018)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $8,000.00 +
Sold Price: $10,003.35 (includes buyer's premium)


Handsome vintage matte-finish 5 x 7 photo of the Kennedys slicing their wedding cake, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "For the Ken Brownes, With every good wish, John Kennedy" and "Jacqueline Kennedy.” Reverse bears typed collector's notations indicating that it was signed through the mail in 1954. In fine condition, with two light paperclip impressions to the top edge, and moderate contrast to both signatures against the floral background.

Following their September 12, 1953 marriage at St. Mary's in Newport, Rhode Island, the newlywed Kennedys played host to over 1,200 guests at the Bouvier family's Hammersmith Farm. This spectacular photograph shows the couple slicing their cake at the reception, preparing to serve it to the multitude of revelers. John and Jackie are rare in dual-signed photos, and this image is the first of its kind we've ever seen.
