About this item

The paper knife/ letter opener is from the ‘Paris Exhibition’ in 1937 and depicts the Eiffel Tower.
The 1937 exhibition was held in the purposely built Palau’s de Chaillot and still stands today.
As with the 1889 exhibition and the Eiffel Tower, a new tower was planned and to be called Phare du Monte (lighthouse to the world) and stand 2,300ft tall, twice that of the orginal tower and made of concrete at a planned £2.5 million (equivalent to £165,402,388 today), it was cancelled!
