    Description

    Glenn Ford Signed Tanning Board with Tanning Goggles, His Personalized Blanket, and Monogrammed Towels. A vintage tanning board, circa 1949, signed on the back by Ford in brown felt tip and accompanied by a pair of tanning goggles. Ford resisted using too much makeup while on a set, and used these items for many years to darken his skin naturally. In over all Very Fine condition with, ironically, some tanning to the reverse side of the board. Also from his personal effects: a large red polyester blanket with "Glenn" embroidered near one corner, measuring 50" x 68" and in Excellent condition; and a set of three red bath towels monogrammed with the initials "GF," all in Very Fine to Excellent condition with some small areas of discoloration. From the Glenn Ford Estate. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA (signed board) and a letter of provenance from Peter Ford.
