MEMBERS ONLY Union Club Limited Edition Luxury Candle in 22 Carat Gold by MiN New York
BRAND: MiN NEW YORK
Founded in 1836, The UNION CLUB is the first private club in New York and the third oldest in the United States. A men's only establishment, members included Dwight Eisenhouwer, Ulysses Grant, William Randolph Hearst, John Jacob Astor IV, and Harold Vanderbilt. In 1901, the Union built an ebullient limestone clubhouse at the northeast corner of 51st and Fifth. But, according to “The Architecture of Delano & Aldrich” (W. W. Norton, 2003) by Peter Pennoyer and Anne Walker, the members voted in 1927 to move uptown, to a quieter and less crowded location. They sold the 51st Street clubhouse, with an agreement giving them five years to move, and began a leisurely hunt for property that led to 69th and Park, the center of a concentration of mansions, even though apartment houses lined the rest of the street. Each piece is signed, numbered. Hand-Painted in 22 carat gold and made of Bone China.
