Years passed as a “forgotten” Winnie the Pooh drawing was kept in a drawer

When it goes up for auction next month, an original black-and-white drawing of Winnie the Pooh. His close pal Piglet that had been sitting in a drawer for decades is predicted to bring thousands of dollars.

The pen and ink painting is reportedly identical to one of the final images in A.A. Milne’s first Winnie the Pooh book. Which was published in 1926. According to Dominic Winter Auctioneers, the company in charge of the sale.

On a small white card that was 3.5 inches by 6.5 inches in size, an image that would soon be auctioned at auction was produced. It was dated and signed E.H. Shepard 1958″ in the bottom right corner.

Amazingly, the drawing was only recently discovered after Christopher Foyle. The grandson of William Foyle, who co-founded the British bookseller Foyles. Contacted British auctioneers to evaluate his belongings.

Forgotten Winnie the Pooh

It is currently anticipated to bring in between $25,000 and $38,000 ($20,000 to $30k).

“Unloved and forgotten”
Christopher Foyle’s widow Catherine discovered the drawing, not the library. According to Chris Albury, senior auctioneer and valuer at Dominic Winter Auctioneers, who spoke with CNN on Thursday.
According to Albury, who also noted that it was in a low-quality frame with tape over the glass, the drawing was discovered wrapped in a tea towel at the back of a drawer in a cellar. It had been abandoned and forgotten.

I’ve seen copies a lot over the years, and whenever I do, I typically tell people that if they were real, they would be extremely valuable. yet it isn’t; it’s worthless.

But this time was different.

It’s worth a few tens of thousands of pounds, according to Albury, who also noted that when the painting goes up for auction on September 27, collectors from all over the world are anticipated to show interest.

Albury said in a press release from the auctioneers that the sketch is worth more than the majority of the expensive volumes on proud display in the [Christopher Foyle] library, which are also up for sale.

It’s not quite up to the original image created for the book in the 1920s, he continued, but it is the best alternative and the only one of the same illustration that has reportedly been on the market.
