Owl's House

This is an original unpublished Winnie-the-Pooh illustration by E.H. Shepard: Pooh and Piglet outside Owl's House. It was bought directly from E.H. Shepard's widow by theatre director Mrs Veronica Flint-Shipman, who then added the inscription "For Julian Slade from V.F-S. Phoenix Theatre, 1st Performance of A.A. Milne's Winnie-the-Pooh Christmas 1970". The illustration comes up for grabs in Christie's London auction on 10 December with an estimated price tag of £50,000 - £70,000 (CLICK).
