This collection of movie memorabilia associated with silent screen legend Mary Pickford was sold by Britannic Auctions for $430 in March 2022.

Exploring Mary Pickford’s Personal Touch

At the heart of this group lies an original personal Christmas card, bearing Mary Pickford’s distinctive monogram.

Dating back to the 1920s, during her marriage to Douglas Fairbanks, this memento features a message extending holiday wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Bright and Happy New Year. It bears Mary’s printed signature as “Mary ‘Pickford’ Fairbanks”.

Capturing Candid Moments at Pickfair

Complementing the Christmas card are three black-and-white candid snapshot photos, providing a glimpse into Mary Pickford’s private world at Pickfair in 1931.

These images capture Pickford’s interaction with a gentleman who appears to be making a presentation of some sort. Notably, a display box prominently featured in one of the snapshots holds what appears to be a miniature shovel or spade. These snapshots offer a window into the glamorous yet world of Hollywood’s elite during the heyday of silent cinema.
