Partridge Family Memorabilia

”The Partridge Family” ruled American television sets from 1970 – 1974 and afterwards in syndication.  One of the most memorable moments is the ”The Partridge Family” opening credits.  We found the original artist, Emmy award winning Sandy Dvore, and we are now auctioning off all of his original ”The Partridge Family” celluloids from the famous opening credits at the end of this month.  One with all of the partridges hung on his wall in his apartment in West Hollywood for all of these years.  These are the most valuable Partridge Family memorabilia items ever to sell at auction.  Here are just three examples below of the few “The Partridge Family” celluloids that we have at auction:

”The Partridge Family” Animated Title Artwork by Legendary Artist Sandy Dvore — First Time at Auction

SOLD FOR $50,000 IN OCTOBER 2016 AUCTION

Available for the first time at auction, the animation artwork from the iconic title sequence of ”The Partridge Family”, designed by legendary title artist Sandy Dvore. This instantly recognizable piece features the mother partridge followed by her five cheepers (chicks), one of only two known pieces with the entire animated Partridge Family. The famous title sequence for the show, in which the mother partridge breaks out of her shell and leads her chicks, was originally done for the pilot by Dvore, and was subsequently used during the entire series because it was so clever and groundbreaking. At the time of the pilot in 1969, color was just arriving to television and title sequences until then had mostly consisted of black and white typeface, simply listing the name of the show. For ”The Partridge Family”, Dvore decided to not only incorporate color into the title sequence (taking color cues from the famous Mondrian-inspired bus that the family drove), but also used animation, which until then had mostly been limited to cartoons. The result is one of the most enduring title sequences in the history of television. Described in the seminal book on title sequences, ”Untitled” as ”…one of the most brilliant and most atypical designers of all time”, Dvore rose to prominence in the early sixties creating iconic illustrations for trade ads in the ”Hollywood Reporter” and ”Variety” for stars such as Judy Garland and Frank Sinatra. He soon segued to create a new art form, the film trade ad, and also designed the logos for entertainment companies United Artists, Lorimar and ICM. Artwork consists of several layers of paper cut-outs affixed to black paper background. All characters are original except for the feet, which were added later. Signed by Dvore at lower right on black paper. Visible portion measures 17.5” x 9.5”, framed to 23” x 15”. Near fine. A fine example of Partridge Family memorabilia.  With LOA from Sandy Dvore.  Sold for $50,000.
