The President signs a rare and extraordinarily large engraving after his Nobel-Prize winning peace efforts.
Annotated Engraving Signed, "Theodore Roosevelt" October 13, 1905. The entire engraving takes the view of Roosevelt in a large, overscale oval portraiture, presidential view, framed in an oval border, hanging on a wall over the mantle of a fireplace - the result leaves a magnificent impression. 19x25 visible. Roosevelt has signed at the bottom center for Charles Francis, his minister to Austria-Hungary: "To Hon. Charles S. Francis with the regards of Theodore Roosevelt Oct. 13th 1905." This engraving is Copy #25 of a very limited edition issue. Roosevelt signed and annotated this portrait just one month after successfully completing negotiations at the Treaty of Portsmouth, which ended the war between Russian and Japan. Those mediations earned him the Nobel Prize for Peace. In brown ink. Handsome, high-polished mahogany frame with charcoal etched frame attached, ecru silk mat, gold filets, engraved historical plate. Note this is a large presentation (28¼ x 42). Charles S. Francis (1853-1911) American editor and diplomat, appointed by Roosevelt to serve as Minister to Austria-Hungary (1906-1910). Minor chip at bottom right corner of frame. Fine condition.
