Description


Fabulous vintage matte-finish 9 x 6 oversized photo of the Wright Brothers first flight, signed and inscribed in black ink to his cousin, “To Elizabeth Payne, with best wishes, Orville Wright.” Double matted and framed to an overall size of 15 x 12.5. In fine condition, with moderate contrast to the handwriting against the turf background, and the handwriting a couple of shades light but completely legible.

On December 17, 1903, Orville Wright piloted the first powered airplane 20 feet above a wind-swept North Carolina beach in a flight lasting 12 seconds and covering 120 feet. That brief trip skyward earned the brothers throngs of admirers including their cousin, whom the brothers bestowed with this remarkable image…one that is more than twice the size of the more common, but still scarce, ‘first flight’ signed photos. An exceptionally desirable image, with outstanding association; just a handful of these oversized images have ever appeared at auction. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
