Not in perfect condition, but oh so hard to find and this is why I offer it to you today.
From the 1964-65 New York Worlds Fair African Pavilion I bring you this braided charm bracelet.
Measuring 7 7/8” long it is made of braided black cord with a clasp closing. There are 3 charms done in a heavy metal that has been colored black, and one that is a token showing the Banyan Tree and huts that represented Africa's pavilion. The token is a gold colored metal with black background. The reverse is simply the gold colored metal showing the imprint on the front. The other three are a traditional African drum called a Djembe, a grass hut and a masked African dancer.
Sizes of the charms are: 7/8” across of the Pavilion charm; 7/8 high and 3/8” wide at the top for the Djembe Drum; 6/8” wide and 5/8 high for the hut; The dancer is 1” high and 5/8” wide.
Condition is Poor Vintage, however as I said above this is a hard to find item for collectors of the 64 Worlds Fair and also collectors of African Tradition.
The clasp has lost its plating and has started to rust. Also the Pavilion Charm has lost some plating on the word Africa and next to the tree. The other three charms show slight ware on several places on each. You can see this in my close up photo's.
I am offering this bracelet at the least amount possible so that if you collect fair memorabilia you will (I hope) want to preserve this as a part of history.
