Hand written and signed personal note that was originally sent along with a bouquet of flowers to Janet Villella on letter head from Salou Designs, a very chic flower shop located at 452A Columbus Avenue in Manhattan - sent to Villela's Park Avenue address. Janet Villella was a well known socialite who, in the late 70s, hung around with the Rich and Famous like Gianni and Marella Agnelli, Diane Keaten the studio 54 crowd, etc. Andy Warhol famously painted Janet Villella's portrait. In fact, the portrait which was exhibited at the Whitney Museum, later sold privately by Gagosian Gallery and then publicly by Sotheby's in London. This unique note is accompanied by the original envelope and bow provided by Salou Designs flower shop -- and is elegantly framed. The back of the frame bears a label from the Mark Borghi Gallery in NYC.
