NORMAN ROCKWELL SIGNED HAND WRITTEN LETTER SIGNATURE AUTOGRAPH CHRISTMAS CARD
Original, personal, handwritten Norman Rockwell autographed note card from the artist and his wife Molly, featuring a photo of the couple in their living room. 7 3/4 inches by 5 inches, handwritten inscription and signature by Norman Rockwell, dated Christmas 1975 and signed by him "Molly & Norman Rockwell."
This is an exceptionally rare Norman Rockwell item. It is completely hand written by Rockwell, as one would expect a Christmas card to be. This is the Rockwell's personal Christmas card and was never made available to the public. It was only sent to family friends and Rockwell's colleagues. This is a personal Rockwell item with interesting content, hence much more sought after and sure to appreciate than a simple autograph.
Purchased from the estate of David H. Wood, former director of the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts.
The letter reads:
Dear Mr. and Mrs. Wood - It was indeed a great pleasure to meet you at last and we are frequently & delectably reminded by the Beach-Plum jelly. We feel deeply indebted to you for the joy we have in David, and we feel sad that in this card he is represented only by a cup or a glass. It is not usually so. We wish you a very happy Christmas & much gladness in the new year.
Most sincerely, Molly & Norman Rockwell
