Very Rare Cultural Revolution Meeting Invitation

This is an absolutely fascinating historical document from the Cultural Revolution. Everything about this piece merits attention from the true collector from the perfect name of the meeting place (The East is Red Auditorium!) to the wonderful names of the units that were sponsoring this meeting, all seemingly trying to outdo the other for most revolutionary correct title. A stunning piece!

The invitation is printed on tissue thin red paper that has somehow survived nearly 40 years of handling. As the scan shows, there are signs of wear with deterioration of folds clearly evident. Once properly framed this will be forever protected.
