1960s Tower of Americas Trinket Tray
Trinket trays made of smoke glass and decorated with travel destinations from around the world were a popular souvenir in the 1960s and 70s. This particular tray depicts the iconic Tower of Americas in San Antonio, Texas which was erected as the theme structure for the 1968 Worlds Fair. Until 1996 when the Stratosphere Tower was completed in Las Vegas, the Tower of Americas stood as the tallest observation tower in the United States. This tray is decorated with white and gold art and measures 3 3/8" x 2 3/4".
