1964 New York World’s Fair Unisphere Ashtray
The theme was ‘Peace Through Understanding’ and it was dedicated to “Man’s Achievement on a Shrinking Globe in an Expanding Universe”. It was the 1964-65 World’s Fair held in New York City and a main attraction was the 12-story steel model of the Earth located in Queens.
In the 60’s, you could still find ashtrays as souvenirs, and luckily, this one is in nearly the exact same condition as the time it first went home with a fair goer. Less than minor chips of enamel around a couple edges and slight fading of color, other than that it’s as if it’s 1964 in New York City still!
