    Description

    Elvis Presley Owned Butterfly in Acrylic Case from the Pool Room of Graceland. A large preserved butterfly perched atop a twig in a 5" x 5" x 5" clear acrylic case, previously owned by Elvis Presley and displayed in Graceland's Pool Room. From the accompanying notarized letter of provenance from Memphis Mafia member Richard Davis: "I was in Elvis' Pool Room at Graceland one day with several of the Memphis Mafia as I was delivering some records Elvis wanted. Everyone was playing pool with Elvis. I had drunk a few cocktails and kept picking up one of the butterfly cubes with a large brown butterfly inside. Elvis said, 'Man, you sure are staring at that thing, you better take it home', which I did. It has been with me ever since." Includes a photo of the Pool Room at Graceland, in which the butterfly cube can be seen. Fine condition, with minor scratching to the case, and some deterioration to the butterfly due to age. LOA from Richard Davis.
