#415 - Anton Chekhov Handwritten Envelope Panel Estimate: $4,000+

Hand-addressed envelope panel by the Russian master of the short story

Esteemed Russian playwright and short-story writer (1860-1904). Exceedingly rare address panel from the front of a mailing envelope, 5.25 x 3.25, addressed in Anton Chekhov's hand to Captain Alexander Ivanovitch of the 22nd East Siberian Front Regiment, 10th Company, with an affixed postage stamp and two postal cancellations, one dated April 13, 1904. Affixed to a slightly larger card and in very good condition, with a few tears and rough edges. Accompanied by a letter in French by his wife, signed "Olga Tchekhova Knipper," sending her correspondent the front panel from her husband's envelope, explaining that it was sent by Chekhov from the Crimea, in the south of Russia, while he was serving in the Manchurian Army in the war against Japan in 1904; on the reverse of the second page, she pens a translation of the address written by her husband.
