RARE WORLD'S FAIR BOOKMARK, CIRCA 1933.

THE CENTURY OF PROGRESS WAS HELD TO COMMEMORATE THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INCORPORATION OF THE CITY OF CHICAGO. THE THEME OF THE FAIR WAS TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION. ITS MOTTO WAS " SCIENCE FINDS, INDUSTRY APPLIES, MAN CONFORMS." ITS ARCHITECTURAL SYMBOL WAS THE SKY RIDE, A TRANSPORTER BRIDGE PERPENDICULAR TO THE SHORE ON WHICH ONE COULD RIDE FROM ONE END OF THE FAIR TO THE OTHER.

IT IS EMBOSSED "1933 A CENTURY OF PROGRESS CARILLON TOWER CHICAGO". MADE OF COPPER AND BRASS AND MEASURES 4 1/2" INCHES LONG. A VERY SMALL BEND AT THE TOP AS IT SHOULD BE WITH USE AND IS IN GREAT CONDITION!

THANK YOU FOR LOOKING.PLEASE CHECK BACK OFTEN FOR MORE VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE ART DECO, ART NOUVEAU BOOKENDS AND FIGURINES.

**** PLEASE NOTE: I AM ALWAYS HAPPY TO COMBINE SHIPPING. MANY OF MY METAL BOOKENDS AND FIGURINES ARE MADE OF HEAVY METAL. I SHIP AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE USING USPS FLAT RATE BOXES SINCE WEIGHT AND LOCATION IN THE USA (EXCLUDING HAWAII OR ALASKA) IS NOT AN ISSUE AND SAVES THE BUYER MONEY IN DOING SO. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND IF MORE THEN ONE AUCTION IS WON AND I CAN'T SAFELY FIT MORE THEN ONE SET OF BOOKENDS OR OTHER ITEMS IN A FLAT RATE BOX I WILL PUT IN A LARGER BOX AND COULD COST THE BUYER MORE . SO PLEASE WAIT UNTIL I CAN SEND AN INVOICE BEFORE PAYING SINCE IT MIGHT BE THE MOST ECONOMICAL WAY TO SHIP SEPERATE IN A FLAT RATE BOX. BE ASSURED I WILL ONLY SHIP THE SAFEST AND MOST ECONOMICAL WAY TO SAVE YOU THE MOST MONEY AND NEVER CHARGE EXTRA FOR IT.
