Description

    Frank Sinatra Original Sketch on Mirabelle Restaurant Tablecloth, Signed and Dated "Xmas 1986". Freehand, black-ink sketch on cloth, cut from a larger tablecloth used at Sinatra's table at the Mirabelle Restaurant, which is noted on the back of the frame. Double-matted to 22" x 17" in a 29" x 23.5" frame. This unique, rather surreal Sinatra artwork features a house with two chimneys, and a figure standing on the roof, who appears to be envisioning a train steaming across the sky above. Sinatra was greatly interested in trains (including his own collection of electric trains), and this one conjured from his own fertile imagination includes an engine, coal car, and two passenger cars. Signed in blue ink and inscribed to confidant and close friend Jilly Rizzo (in full): "Frank Sinatra/Xmas 1986". In Fine condition with original creases and a small brown stain above the coal car -- chocolate perhaps? From the Jilly Rizzo Estate Archive. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA and a letter of provenance from William Rizzo.
