    Description

    Lucille Ball Large Framed Black-and-White Photo Inscribed to Husband Gary Morton. A strikingly lovely b&w photo portrait of a wide-eyed Lucy, inscribed boldly in black ink, "I'm watching you Gary - With love and admiration always Lucy." As the letters in this consignment reveal, Lucy was quite jealous in regards to her second husband, and she seems to have been spoofing her rather "territorial" nature in this portrait and inscription. Photo is circa 1960, measures 10.5" x 13.5" and is matted into a 15" x 18" frame. The portrait has a few tiny white marks near Lucy's left ear (and diamond earring), but this hardly detracts from the overall effect, and the inscription and autograph are flawless. In Very Fine to Excellent condition. This lot will be accompanied by a letter of provenance from Susie Morton as the widow of Gary Morton, Ms. Ball's second husband. The lot is not offered by the estate of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. Requires third party shipping.
