1933CHICAGO WORLD'S FAIR TAPESTRY! Fresh from an estate, an amazing souvenir from the 1933 Chicago World's Fair. The motto for this fair was the Century of Progress, and the fair was held in Chicago Il in the years. 1933-1934. The tapestry features and ariel view of the fair with the Sky Ride, blimps, airplane etc. It has a velveteen look and the sheen of the velvet shows reflection of the light in the pictures. The heavy tapestry measures 44" long overall including the fring,. 25" across. It is in good condition overall with no major damage. No holes or tears, fring intact. Lite signs of its age can be seen but does not detract from its overall display quality. It does have a lite musty odor from many years of storage. Take a look below. This is one of the early tapestries that was produced for the fair, it does not have the title across the bottom as the later ones did. A rare find and a great addition to your collection.  $155.00

This is an original solid brass metal letter opener from an estate. It was a premium from the "PAN AMERICAN EXPOSITION", more popularly known as the 1901 Worlds Fair that was held in Buffalo, New York from May 01, 1901 through November 02, 1901.  Standing atop the 5 5/8" tall blade and pedestal, is a 1 1/8" tall, 1 1/2" wide, and 1/2" sculpture of a buffalo.  Engraved on one side of the blade, "PAN=AMERICAN".  On the other side of the blade, in large engraved numbers is "1901".  Imprinted near the top of the blade it states, "PAT.   MAY 14 1901". This letter opener does have a slightly misshapened blade, (some waves). Could be flattened out, but I prefer the original state for its character.
