    Charles Schulz Specialty Drawing (c. 1952). This delightful drawing of two Peanuts-like little children was drawn by Charles Schulz for some special family friends. Charles and first wife, Joyce, often traveled, and one of their regular stops was to visit Joyce's cousin and her family. The two families were very close, with "Sparky" doing several small drawings for their kids, and even painting Peanuts characters on their bedroom walls! For the fourth birthday of one of the children, Sparky did this lovely specialty piece, with young "Chris" hogging his birthday cake from another child. The art is in ink and watercolor on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 10" x 8.5". The art was originally left unsigned, and Chris added his own "Schulz" to show his friends. Years later, the real Schulz was gracious enough to sign the drawing, over the partially erased name written by Chris. If you love Peanuts (and we know so many of you do), this early sketch will be a rare treat! As a bonus, a print of a vintage photo of both families together is included, as well as a letter from the "Chris" in the drawing and photo, verifying the provenance. Framed with a glass front. There are several small stains and a very slight crease in the right side of the board, but overall we consider this to be in Very Good condition.
