DescriptionAtlas Stationer’s is back with a new Tornado Exclusive - The World’s Columbian Exposition. This is the third in the Atlas series following Century of Progress (2019) and the Great Fire of Chicago (2021). The World’s Columbian Exposition fair was held in Chicago from May through October 1893, showing the world that Chicago had risen from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire. Forty-six nations participated, and 27 million people visited. The Expo introduced the Ferris Wheel, the first moving walkway, the Tiffany Chapel, Cracker Jack, and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. The Statue of the Republic was the centerpiece of the expo and is also the centerpiece of this rollerball.
The design is complimented with other architectural and Victorian features of the day and the shimmering brass barrel shines through. The Tornado is finished with matching antique brass accents and the top disc features one of the 6-point stars from the Chicago flag. Each pen is numbered on the top ring and packaged in a commemorative tube. Pick up this classic design only at Atlas Stationers.
