Charles Lee offers over 40 years of experience in collecting and authenticating autographs.
This catalogue reflects his own collecting preferences - autographs from the Golden Age of Hollywood, lovely signed vintage sepia photographs, scarce character actors, clean album pages and cards for matting with a favourite picture and unusual and difficult to find rarities.
Charles is a recognised authority on Vivien Leigh and his catalogue always offers a wonderful selection of authentically signed Vivien Leigh material.
This catalogue is updated with new stock and deletions on a daily basis (sometimes several times a day).
Using the links on the left you may browse the catalogue by category or use the search facility to quickly find the item you are looking for.
Charles is picky about quality - items generally are in very good condition indeed and any faults are carefully described in the text.
Burke, Billie (1885-1970)American character actress, often playing the part of a dithery, empty-headed but endearing woman, immortalised as Glinda , the Good Fairy, in the classic The Wizard of Oz (1939).
An exceptionally pretty early vintage sepia Rotary postcard, boldly signed in dark blue ink across the image. The card has been sent through the postal system and carries a half-penny stamp, franked in 1905
Cole, George (1925-2015)
Very fine British character actor, in some excellent films but probably most famous as the very dodgy Arthur Daley in television’s Minder series, which ran from 1979 to 1984.
A wonderful original vintage black and white publicity photograph (9.25" x 7.5") of Cole in the comedy Too Many Crooks (1959), as the gang leader "Fingers", disguised as a policeman, nicely signed in period across a clear area of the image.
Leigh, Vivien (and Burton & many others) (1913-1967)
Double Oscar-winning actress, immortalised by her portrayal of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind (1939).
An extraordinary show business collectable - a part page cut from a wonderful visitors' book (8.5" x 8"), signed in ink on both sides by some of the biggest stars of film and television at the time, including Vivien Leigh, Claire Bloom, Laurence Olivier, Richard Burton, Denholm Elliott, Paul Massie, Tommy Cooper and Geoffrey Keen.
