Item 4065 - Chester A. Arthur Signed Photograph Catalog 562 (Feb 2020)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $500.00
Sold Price: $3,176.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Rare 4.26 x 6 cabinet photo of Arthur by C. M. Bell of Washington, signed at the bottom of the image in ink, "Chester A. Arthur." In very good condition, with overall creasing, discoloration, trimming to the mount, and a missing upper left corner tip. Taken in 1882 during Arthur's first year in office, signed images of the president are incredibly scarce. This photograph is also notable for its photographer, Charles Milton Bell. A celebrity in his own right, Bell established an acclaimed photography studio on Pennsylvania Avenue, and counted President Arthur among his elite clientele.
