BADER, D. - Pencil Signature


Price per Unit (piece): £90.00


Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader CBE, DSO*, DFC*

 

A highly sought after pencil signature of one of the most distinguished RAF Fighter pilots of World War Two.

A Battle of Britain veteran with 242 Squadron flying in Hawker Hurricanes, he became associated with the controversial Duxford based "Big Wing" during the later stages of the Battle. In 1941 he flew Spitfires as the leader of the famous Tangmere Wing, taking the fight back across the English Channel. During this period he was shot down and captured and imprisoned in the infamous Colditz Castle.

His exploits are well documented and many books have written detailing his life.

 

An original pencil signature.

We hold a small stock of these sought after signatures and most have all been obtained from limited edition prints, such as "Spitfire" and "Dual of Eagles" by Robert Taylor, see example below.

Market prices are being driven ever higher as serious collectors search for pencil signatures. This is due mainly to the high volume of ink signatures available from the period which Bader signed, are now fading.

 

The medium which these signatures are on is heavy grade fine art paper, approximately 300gsm.

Please note:

The actual dimensions of the signature supplied may vary due to the position of the signature on the paper and how much clear surrounding area was available before being clipped.

On request we can supply (where possible) and entire section of the original print that the signature was taken from (see below).

For some collectors this forms part of the provenance.
