Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $446.25 (includes buyer's premium)


Eminent French sculptor (1834-1904) best known for designing the Statue of Liberty. ALS in French, signed “Bartholdi,” one page both sides, 4.5 x 7, personal letterhead, January 10, 1895. Letter to a gentleman, in full (translated): "I come to receive the visit of Miss Smedley who came from you; it reminds me that for a long time I would have wanted to let you know a bit about my works and my workshop. However Mr. and Mrs. Goudchaun and a few friends come to dine with us Tuesday, January 15th at 7 1/2 hours without ceremony, in office attire. If you would be so kind as to make friends with Madame Yves Guyot to honor your presence, this intimate little meeting, you would be very happy. I may be doing it a little late; but it is an inspiration, excuse me and allow us to hope an exceptional chance. Madame Bartholdi recommends your request to Madame Yves Guyot; please assure all my respectful tributes and accept the expression of my all devoted feelings." In fine condition.
