    Natacha Rambova Personal Items - Signed Receipt, Letter, Book and Newspaper/Magazine Clippings. This intriguing packet of personal items from Rambova includes a receipt, dated May 11, 1920 and signed in full "Natacha Rambova;" a handwritten letter in green ink, dated March 1 and addressed to "My Dear Ella," mentioning Salome and signed "Sincerely, Natacha Rambova," with original envelope postmarked Los Angeles March 2, 1922; approximate 4" by 6" booklet on DuBarry perfume, with name "Richard Hudnut" engraved on cover (possibly Rambova's stepfather); and two newspaper and two magazine clippings, related to Rambova's relationship with Valentino. Very Good condition, especially for items that have somehow survived the past 80-plus years.
