Customer Question
We have several unique items...
We have several unique items that belonged to ***** *****. In the mid-eighties I purchased in LA:a large crewel/embroidered work framed of Jerry, a cigarette box with initials JL, and most important in an acrylic box his black hat from those days, very worn from much use. The dealer I bought them from told me he got them from Lewis’ ex-wife Patty in a garage sale after he divorced her. I was a huge fan and have many movie posters but these are special. I visited Vegas a few years later and the same embroidered picture was on the wall of his office. I had gone there to get an autograph. The secretary sent me the autographed photo in the mail. I told his secretary I had that same picture and she looked at me like I was crazy. This was obviously something made for him.
