1939 New York World’s Fair Welcome Banner


If you collect world’s fair memorabilia then you already know how rare this item is. This large banner was not made a souvenir or give-away. These were produced in limited quantities and used by the promoters of the fair. It is in very nice condition for something this perishable. Many have not survived. There is a water stain but no damage and the top gold rope and bottom fringe is still all there.
