This lot has closed

Estimate: $2000+

Description

Original sketch of Snoopy by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz, depicting Charlie Brown's pet dog lying contentedly on the roof of his doghouse, accomplished in pencil on an off-white 7.25 x 10.5 sheet of Western Airlines stationery, signed and inscribed in the upper and lower borders, "For Nan—, Charles M. Schulz." Mounted and framed with three Western Airlines pins to an overall size of 15 x 19. In fine condition, with some faint stains, and a light crease, to the top left.

Accompanied by a handwritten letter of provenance from the original recipient: "During the 1960's I was a stewardess…for Western Airlines. On a flight to Las Vegas, I had the good fortune to meet Charles Schulz and his traveling companion, cartoonist Marty Links (Martha Arguello) creator of the comic strip 'Emmy Lou.' They were headed to a cartoonist convention and having a great time, laughing and kidding with each other and with me. I felt comfortable enough to ask Mr. Schulz if he'd draw me a picture of Snoopy. He pulled out a sheet of our airline stationery, at that time in each seat back pocket, asked my name and within a few minutes I had not only a picture of Snoopy, but his famous dog house too."
