Ticket | V&A. In the early 19th century theatre tickets were not printed on paper unless the performance was a Benefit. For everyday performances tickets were in the form of brass or copper metal checks purchased by patrons at the box office and surrendered as they entered the auditorium. Commemorative ivory and silver were also used. This ivory ticket is for the Duke of York's box at the King's Theatre in London's Haymarket for the 1804/5 opera season. Tons more info at site.
