Soapstone Desk Accessory - Century of Progress 1933

1933 Chicago World's Fair "Century of Progress." Elaborately carved soapstone desk accessory. This is one of the more unusual souvenirs from the Chicago Century of Progress World's Fair in 1933 that we have encountered. A block of soapstone has been carved into a miniature garden scene complete with urns of flowers and singing birds. There are three compartments in the top, presumably for pens, letter opener and scissors. It is etched "Chicago World's Fair 1934". It measures 6" long x 3" high x 2" deep. There are several chips inside the compartments and a crack in the back, none of which is visible from the front. (Stock number 003wf33Soap) $100.00
