    Description

    The Whimsical Threads of Destiny (Vitagraph, 1913). Foreign Poster (63.5" X 92.5").
    Frederick A. Thomas directs this short melodrama, centering around a hefty inheritance, arranged marriages, and a love triangle. Julia Swayne Gordon and Courtenay Foote play the betrothed couple, with memorable performances by the trick riding St. Leon sisters. A Heritage first with an exciting image, this beautiful stone litho poster shows the title in French, German, and Italian. It has edge and fold wear with small chips and tears, stains and toning in the borders and folds, and faint writing bleedthrough. Some of these issues have been addressed, and there has been touchup to the folds and a tear in the upper right background. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.


    Estimate: $2,500 - $5,000.
