1906 CHARLES DICKENS NY PRESS CLUB DINNER SOUVENIR CARD TICKET GLASS PAPERWEIGHT:
CHARLES DICKENS BIRTHDAY PAPERWEIGHT
This listing features a 1906 souvenir of the Charles Dickens (1812-1870) 94th Memorial Birthday Dinner hosted by the New York Press Club and the Manhattan Dickens Fellowship. There is a Lawyer's Auxiliary Bureau advertisement card attached on the reverse. The “double card” has not been sealed within the paperweight holder but it’s still usable and open on back.
The overall measurements of the glass holder is approximately 4 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide by 3/4 of an inch thick. The souvenir card fits it perfectly and since I found the card and holder packed together. The glass is clear although my photos make it look otherwise. It needs a little spiffing up and has some age to it but there are no chips, cracks, or major scratches, just a few bubbles.
The Dickens card measures approximately 3 1/2 inches long by slightly over 2 1/2 inches wide. It is in excellent vintage condition though a bit faded and mellowed with time.
The Lawyers’ Auxiliary Bureau card is the same size but slightly wider, and in the same condition, but is not as old. Each card was printed in two colors on what feels like card stock weight paper.
Please inspect the photos of both cards. I have nothing more to add about this event (there is nothing online) but I can add two well known quotes that Dickens is penned:
“A day wasted on others is not wasted on one's self.”
“Have a heart that never hardens, and a temper that never tires, and a touch that never hurts.”
