1st item: Framed ticket to Jenny Lind's Wednesday, April 2, 1851 performance in Nashville. The printed ticket, with handwritten number 945, has facsimile signature for tour manager P.T. Barnum and allows entry to the world famous Swedish soprano's second concert in Nashville. Housed in a decorative frame with fabric flowers, 6" H x 4" W. 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 is said to have upset Lind. 2nd item: Rare 1895 "Children from Many Lands" Advertising Calendar for the Greenbrier Distillery, Nashville, Tennessee, published by Raphael Tuck. Includes 12 pages for all months in the year, joined by a metal hanger at top (some pages have become detached). 12 1/2" H x 9" W. 3rd item: assorted grouping of ephemera: two boards for the Green Brier Distillery 1904 "Dream Faces" Advertising Calendar (covers June through December, no internal pages); plus some internal pages from incomplete calendars of the same era published by the Equitable Assurance and John D. Anderson Companies of Nashville, a scrapbook of a few other unrelated images, and 2 Campfire Girls sheet music songs including Mammy Moon and Mystic Fire. Provenance: the estate of Sarah Hunter Hicks Green, formerly of Historic Devon Farm, Nashville, Tennessee.
