DAVID NIVEN (3)

Vintage 7.75 x 9.75 glossy black and white chest-up studio portrait, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen, “Dear Irene/Many thanks/David Niven/(‘Bish)’,” a reference to The Bishop’s Wife (1947).  Very good condition, with slightly trimmed borders; a small tear in the top border, intruding about half an inch into the background; and scattered mild thumbing and handling bends, most of them invisible when the photograph is viewed head on.
