Quick Overview

Collectors of presidential inaugural memorabilia have typically found a "space" in their collections when it comes to items from the 1921 inauguration of Warren Harding. Harding had made the decision to tone back the festivities because of the tough economic times that the nation was experiencing at that time. For that reason few collectibles from his inauguration exist.

This is an invitation card to an Inaugural Ball held the night of Harding's inauguration. It is considered a satellite location item since the Ball was not held in Washington, DC but rather in Philadephia Pennsylvania. It was presented by "The Committee of Seven of New York City" and held at the Musical Fund Hall, on Locust Street in Philadelphia.

This is the first, and only one of these invitation cards that we have ever seen.


The focus of the card is not on Harding's inauguration but rather the "grandest affair" and entertainment that would be held that night, but its Inaugural Ball theme is obviously tied to the inauguration being held that day in Washington, D.C. Includes the original envelope.

While not a traditional Washington DC item, this will fill the whole in your inaugural invitation collection.
