Description

An early “Swiss” Audrey with unusual documentation

Gorgeous vintage glossy 7.25 x 9.25 photo of Hepburn in a mink stole, circa 1953–54, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To Rosemary, Every good wish, Audrey Hepburn.” The consignor explains that the photo was originally owned by the proprietor of a store called Ryf Parfumerie, in Bürgenstock (near Lucerne), Switzerland. Accompanied by a copy photo showing the photo we are offering, as signed and inscribed by Hepburn, on display in the window of Ryf Parfumerie. The photo of Hepburn is contained in its sealed original gold leaf frame (the same frame seen in the “documentary” photo) measuring 8.5 x 10.5 overall. A few subtle dings, otherwise fine condition. A lovely example with most unusual early documentation! PSA/DNA Auction LOA and R&R COA.
