€55.00 / Sold Out
"For there lay The Combs—the set of combs, side and back, that Della had worshipped long in a Broadway window.
Beautiful combs, pure tortoise shell, with jewelled rims—just the shade to wear in the beautiful vanished hair.
They were expensive combs, she knew, and her heart had simply craved and yearned over them without the least hope of possession. And now, they were hers, but the tresses that should have adorned the coveted adornments were gone."
PJ Lynch's preparatory drawing for an illustration to O.Henry's 'Gift OfThe Magi' is presented in an attractive mount which measures 10 x 12 inches of which the picture area is 6 x 8 inches.
