1860 King Edward VII Prince of Wales New York Ball Invitation

Sold Price: 
$200.00

Historical ephemera will always find it's way to a good home - I'm showing just the 'dance card' but this was a complete invitation to The Ball honoring Prince Edward's visit to the US in 1860, nearly 100 years after we broke off from England so it was a pretty big deal. Usually pieces like this are thrown away by the following generation but the fact that the original owner's children and grandchildred thought to save this made the buyer (who was in Canada of all places) very happt!
