1901 Pan American Exposition Sivlerplate Tray/Plate/Dish Buffalo Relief
Description I am pleased to offer this souvenir dresser/coin tray from the 1901 Pan American Exposition that was held in Buffalo, NY. Because of it's patina, I believe this tray is silver-plated. It measures 5" in Diameter with a 1/2" depth. A relief of an intricately detailed Bison/Buffalo adorns the middle of the tray. I made no attempt to clean or polish this item. It has a wonderful patina and there are NO dents, dings or bends.
Offered without A Reserve!
FYI:
The exposition is most remembered because President William McKinley was shot by an anarchist, Leon Czolgosz, at the Temple of Music on September 6, 1901. The President died eight days later on September 14 from gangrene caused by the bullet wounds. The newly developed X-ray machine was displayed at the fair, but doctors were reluctant to use it on McKinley to search for the bullet because they did not know what side effects it might have had on him. Also, the operating room at the exposition's emergency hospital did not have any electric lighting, even though the exteriors of many of the buildings were covered with thousands of light bulbs. Doctors used a pan to reflect sunlight onto the operating table as they treated McKinley's wounds.
