The exhibition will feature a selection of rare signatures and historically iconic photos framed for elegant handcrafted display, such as Coco Chanel's ghost signature vintage which is considered to be one of the rarest of all major 20th century signatures as Chanel's full signature is on the item; and an original 3-panel historic display containing  the exceedingly rare hand signed vintage and modern signatures of the 54 Prime Ministers of Great Britain and the United Kingdom.
