LILLIAN GISH
Fabric-covered book of safety matches and a Santa Claus Christmas ornament, formerly belonging to "the First Lady of the Silent Screen".
Ephemera, unsigned. Box of safety matches covered in red fabric, and a porcelain Santa Claus suitable for hanging on a tree, told to us by a credible source that it was hand decorated by Gish for a charity auction. Lillian Gish (1896-1993), born Lillian de Guiche, began her career as child actress "Baby Lillian" at the age of five. Lillian and her sister, Dorothy (1898-1968), who often toured with Lillian, made their film debuts (along with their mother, Mary Gish) in D.W. Griffith's film, An Unseen Enemy in 1912. Over the next several years, Lillian, who is credited as being the first true actress for recognizing the crucial differences between stage and film work and delivering carefully crafted performances, would make a number of films for Griffith, including The Birth of a Nation (1915), Intolerance (1916), Way Down East (1920) and Orphans of the Storm (1922). In 1923, she went to MGM, where she made La Boheme and The Scarlet Letter (both 1926). In 1930, Gish appeared in her first sound film, One Romantic Night (1930). Lillian, who was known as "The First Lady of the Silent Screen", was nominated for a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award for Duel in The Sun (1946) and received an honorary Oscar in 1970 for her contributions to film. Ephemera soiled with age. Matches included. Fine condition.
