This is an authentic hand-signed autographed color picture of Shirley Temple Agar posed with her newborn child.
The size of this item is approximately 12.5" H x 11" W and is an irregular cut clipped periodical picture. Some of these have creases that date back 40 or more years to the time of the actual signing, and was removed as carefully as possible from a vintage scrapbook. Because of this, t may be some scrapbook paper remnants attached to the back of the picture, and/or minor tears. The first name of her signature appears to be somewhat smeared due to water damage stain on bottom of picture, t is a slight tear on the left near the top, and fraying of the left side edge near the bottom. Please see the scans of this item.
This gorgeous item dates from between 1940 - 1966, and comes from the Ethel Rung Estate of Camden, NY which was put on the auction block by Constableville Auction Hall on June 8, 2007. Mrs. Rung was an avid autograph collector who hunted down celebrities visiting the NYC area during the Golden Age of Hollywood. Not having any direct access to studio glossies, Ethel would approach her favorite celebrities and ask them to personally hand sign clipped periodical pictures. Many of these are personally inscribed to her. Later
