JENNY LIND TICKET W/ EPHEMERA - Framed ticket to Jenny Lind's Thirteenth Grand Concert, Monday, June 2, 1851. The printed ticket, with handwritten number 721, has facsimile signature for tour manager P.T. Barnum and allows entry to the world famous Swedish soprano's show in Philadelphia, (she parted ways with Barnum after this concert). Housed in a decorative frame with photo of a portrait print, facsimile letter from First Lady Frances F. Cleveland regarding the print, typed history and handwritten note of the period indicating Lind made $712, 161 dollars on this tour. Lind toured the United States in 1850-1852, to great acclaim. Tickets were in such great demand that Barnum sold them in auctions (with admission charged just to get into the auctions) – a marketing ploy that upset Lind. She was acclaimed for donating much of her take to American charities. 10 1/2" x 7 1/2" frame. Good condition.
