The present autographs were taken within a few years of the quartet’s formation in 1931. Accompanying the item is an 11 x 9 cm newspaper cutting of a photograph of the youthful members of ‘THE FAMOUS GRILLER QUARTET - often heard over the wireless - which created a very favourable impression last night at the first concert for the season of the Aberdeen Chamber Music Club.’ The autographs are on one side of a 16 x 11 cm leaf with rounded edges, extracted from an autograph album. The signatures are one above the other, with Sidney Griller’s large and bold.

1p, 12mo. In envelope with stamp and postmark, addressed by Hess to ‘Francis Davies Esq. / 40, New End Square / London N.W.3.’ In good condition, a little creased and browning. Folded once. Hess has heard from Felix Vandyl that Davies ‘might be prepared to work seriously with a violinist for a more or less permanent basis of activity’, and he himself is ‘looking for a pianist for recitals etc’, and thinks that ‘it might be worth while to come together and to discuss this in detail’. He asks Davies to ‘drop me a card during this week at the above address’.
