The 1939 - 1940 New York World's Fair was one of the best Expos ever. It was an extravaganza of Art Deco delights. If you went, you wanted to bring home a souvenir so you'd remember how great it was.
These two souvenir spoons are from the first year of the Fair...1939. Made by Rogers Mfg. Co., these are heavy silver-plate.
One spoon features The Hall of Medicine and Public Health building with stylized Art Deco scenes. The other spoon is embossed with the Consumer Interests Building with its curved architecture. Both spoons have the iconic symbol of the Fair on the top...the Trylon and Perisphere.
The spoons measure 6 inches. These are in unused excellent condition with no signs of wear.
