Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce vintage 3.5 x 5.5-inch black and white postcard portrait, signed in black fountain pen in the 1920s and again on the verso.  In good condition, with the autograph in a dark area of the image, but more visible than might be suggested by the accompany scan, and some tape stains on the flip side.  The dowdy character actress of the stage, and silent and early talkie screens played landlady Mrs. Hudson in a number of Arthur Wonton Sherlock Holmes films of the 1930s, including Sherlock Holmes' Fatal Hour (1931), Sherlock Holmes and the Missing Rembrandt (1932), The Triumph of Sherlock Holmes (1935), and Murder at the Baskervilles (1937).
