Natalia GONCHAROVA - Union des Artistes Russes
(almost) complete ticket book for the Bal Banal, Paris, 1924
(23 tickets out of 25 -lacking nos 522 & 525-, of which one detached -n° 254-, numbered 501-525, plus the original front paper cover).
Blind light paper front cover with only the purple rubber stamp "Union des Artistes Russes à Paris". The paper of the front cover is very light thus very fragile.
The tickets are printed in brown and gray on tan paper and are perforated near the top and bottom allowing stubs to be torn off. They are stamped at the perforations in purple ink with the seal of the Union des Artistes Russes.
Ticket book and the 22 bound tickets: 32.8 x 16.2 cm.
Detached ticket, without the upper stub part: 26 x 16.2 cm.
Tickets designed by Natalia Goncharova, printed signature and date.
Bal organized by the Union des Artistes Russes (à Paris), March, Friday 14, 1924, at Salle Bullier, 31 avenue de l'Observatoire, Paris. The price of a ticket was 10 Francs.
Front cover: because of the fragility of the paper, there are some creases, folds and a few lacks of paper to edges. Good/Good+.
22 bound tickets: fine, near "as new".
Detached ticket: Very Good".
