Up for your consideration is this super find of an old, ORIGINAL, hard-to-find,1939 New York World's souvenir miniature box "book" made of wood and tin with tiny fold-out photo views of the fair. It measures approximately 1 1/8th by 1 1/4 inches by 1/4 inch thick, overall. At first glance, it appears to be a small pill box made in the form of a book, with a carved wooden base and a stamped tin lid - embossed with the Trylon and Perisphere and "New York World's Fair 1939". When the hinged tin lid is opened, an accordion-style strip of 13 different lithographed World's Fair views are revealed. The wooden base of the box is nicely carved all around. This piece was carefully tucked away as treasured momento of a York County, Pennsylvania high school girl's trip to the World's Fair over 70 years ago. This was found at her estate sale, along with several other 1939 World's Fair pieces. We have sold other pieces from this collection over the past year, and they were all very well received.
CONDITION: Very Fine. One small tarnish spot on the lid keeps us from rating this piece as "excellent". The photo views are complete and intact.
