While I don’t think that there will be any discussion on how cool it is to auction a historic trolley, I wanted to take a quick minute to highlight one of the auction lots that I found to be truly interesting.
Lot #466 is leading the pack in the Spaghetti Warehouse auction. The lot titled “Hand Engraved Brass Plaque Commemorating the 400th Anniversary of the Discovery of America” comes to us from the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893. The world’s fair was held in Chicago in the year 1893 to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Christopher Columbus’s arrival in the New World.
The plaque contains engraved portraits of all of the deceased Presidents at that time from Washington to Lincoln. It lists their date of birth, death, and inauguration of each President. The plaque also contains a portrait of Christopher Columbus and the Santa Maria. It also contains engraved reproductions of the seals of all of the States and Territories in existence in 1892 along with the Spanish Royal Coat of Arms. It is noted on the plaque that it is solid brass and gold plated brass. It was designed by Karl Eckelmann and was purchased in auction in 1982.
