Century of Progress International Exposition was the name of a World's Fair held in Chicago from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. The theme of the fair was technological innovation. The fair's motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Conforms".
This lovely stamp/trinket box has a wood body with hinged brass lid. The lid has an etched image of the 'Federal Building' with delicate scroll border and the exposition's logo in the upper right-hand corner. The original brown felt pad is still in the box, which measures 3 3/8" in length, 2 3/4" in width and 1 3/4" in height. There are no scratches, breaks or dents; near mint. Great souvenir of the Century of progress.
