Wright Brothers - Authentic Piece Of Fabric From The Kitty Hawk Flyer- 1903 Wow:
8x10" printed certificate with the iconic image of the Wright brothers' first flight at Kitty Hawk on December 17, 1903.
Attached to the certificate is an authentic piece of the original fabric from that airplane. The fabric measures about 1 3/4" x 1 3/4".
The text on the certificate gives some history of the fabric swatch and authenticates it as original. The certificate of authenticity is signed by Ivonette Wright Miller, the niece of Wilbur and Orville Wright and daughter of Lorin Wright who was the brother of Wilbur and Orville Wright.
There is one horizontal fold halfway down the page and mild toning along three edges. Overall the page is in fine condition.
A smaller piece of the same fabric was sold by Heritage sale for $33,750.00 (including buyers premium) on May 11, 2018.
A piece of the original Wright Kitty Hawk airplane is the Holy Grail of aviation collecting. This is an especially beautiful example.
