Description



After traveling 30,000 miles and visiting 13 countries, the game's globetrotting ambassadors received a hero's welcome at home. This parting gift from their banquet reception is a seldom-seen relic—no doubt due to its fragile medium. The offered example exhibits exceptional overall preservation with modest toning. It measures 6-1/4" tall x 4-1/4" wide x 3-1/2" deep. The engraved text reads, "MARCH 7 1914 / THE BILTMORE / HOME COMING DINNER."
