After further research, given the previous odd looking Vivien signature I posted about; I bumped into these two, which I find have some good traits.
This first one was allegedly signed in the 1940s, and is also personalized at the bottom: 6f33a1b92e51972a3dbc225eebe5.jpeg
And this one is said to have been signed in 1935 by Vivien and two of her co-stars from the play The Mask of Virtue, which she played in London: 3466b4b72ca42aac664d8ad1fa4b.jpeg
What do you think?
I appreciate any of your feedback and thank you, once again, for your help :)
Thank you Joe.
Yours looks pretty great! I'm sure if you frame it along with a nice photo, like you usually do, it'll look spectacular.
As to the "issues" you mentioned, would you consider them worrying regarding authenticity?
They are both authentic, IMO. With that said, I believe the second one is far too for serious consideration.
Here is a link to my Vivien matted.
I see what you mean about the second one, thanks.
Your matted Vivien looks as amazing as I thought it would! ;)
I forgot to include the word "rushed" although you must have figured that out. :)
Thanks for the compliment on my Vivien.
Yours is pretty awesome too! :D
About the other ones, would you say they look fake then?
I'd just keep looking. For a rare sig she is out there enough. Still tough. One of the most forged. Leigh, Lee, Lugosi, Garland etc. Gotta be careful.
I understand. And yes, all the above you mention are commonly forged, and quite hard to find...
But still, if these I posted seem legit, despite quality issues, I wouldn't mind purchasing one of them. However, given these issues, I might need a little help to check they aren't overpriced.
for me, that is where the line of good price and quality (or lack of) is a major point. It is often said a good price fades, but quality or lack of remains. She is not that rare - I have had more sigs of hers than I can apparently remember from the early 40's to the early 60's.
Personally, I would not say that Vivien Leigh autographs are rare. She was a willing signer. Although I will say that many are less that preferred quality. You get what you pay for.
