Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis – First Lady Wife of JFK – Autographed Letter ALS
About this Item: Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis – First Lady Wife of JFK – Autographed Letter ALS
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994), wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States, autographed handwritten letter (ALS), two pages, no date. “Jackie O” became a cultural icon in her own right; her reverence for the arts, personal fashion sense, air of elegance and grace, and career as a book editor with Doubleday elevated her to a status above and beyond that of ‘First Lady.’
Onassis pens a letter and sketch in red ink to her interior designer, Lee Onthank Barrett: “This is the kind of portable telephone stand I’d like – I think you can get them anywhere – It is table height,” signing “J.K.O.” The second page features her sketch of the telephone stand and her description, “Portable Mahogany Finish Telephone Stand. Bloomingdales? Hammacher Schlemmer?”
An integral player at the internationally renowned Manhattan interior design firm Keith Irvine and Thomas Fleming, Inc., Barrett worked with Jackie after her departure from the White House. He was also employed by other family members, including Ted and Joan Kennedy, Patricia [Kennedy] Lawford, Eunice and Sargent Shriver, and Jean and Stephen Smith.
Measuring approximately 4.25 x 6.25, this letter is in fine condition, with the expected mailing fold and light surface marks.
