An fantastic original large Black Printed White Silk Ribbon Sash, measuring 32" long x 1” wide, with printed central image of Lafayette and the caption above reading, "Welcome Lafayette" in the center. Accompanied by a more modern identification note reading, "Welcome Lafayette Badge - worn by Sarissa Kimball at the time of Lafayette's visit to Newburyport in 1824." A few trivial small holes and abrasions, but remarkably well-preserved for such a fragile item. The first such 32 inch long sash tribute to the Marquis de Lafayette we have seen.
