    A Jeanette MacDonald Pastel Portrait by Charles de Ravenne, 1936. Rendered on illustration board, depicting a beautiful, smiling headshot of the blonde actress, signed in the lower left corner "Ch. de Ravenne / 1936" -- the silent-era actor who left the profession to become a portrait painter; also included is a brown leather box with a handtooled image below text reading "Charles De Ravenne," inside is a small note (attached to a key) handwritten in black fountain pen ink reading "Make Up / Box / of / Charles;" further included with three black and white stills, all original prints with a glossy finish, all related to "Love and Glory" -- a 1924 Universal Pictures film that De Ravenne starred in. (Please note the box is in heavy tattered condition and its handle is broken; the stills are in poor condition as well.)
