  Boy this Vincentennial countdown has been fun! I tell ya I could go forever writing about good ole Vinnie. We passed the halfway mark yesterday with the post about the Poe Films. Today I have another rare and beautiful piece from the Robert Taylor collection.

  Vincent Price’s 2nd wife, Mary Grant Price, was a well-known Hollywood costume designer.  This Victorian sewing box was a treasured piece of family history she kept on display in the Price home.  Surrounding the box’s paneled sides are childhood photos from the Price and Grant families.  Here you can see two of Vinnie as a child–at left, he sits on the lap of his older brother Mort (James Mortimer Price), and at right, young Vinnie, aged around 9, smiles at the camera.  You can readily see how blonde his hair was as a kid in this photo taken outdoors in the sunshine.
