Vintage from the 1950s

Dimensions

Length: 6 Inches; Width: 3 Inches

In 1954 St. Williams Church in the Galewood area of Chicago was raising money for a new church to be built and decided on raffling off tour tickets. These tour tickets were for a house designed by architect Edo Belli who would also design the new church. For $1 you can get a tour of the modern miracle house after it was built as well as get an entry in the raffle to win the house! The appliances were donated by General Electric, the furnishings by Sol Polk of Polk Bros and the steel for the framing was donated by Chicago Bridge and Iron. The house was finished in 1955 and the winner was picked at a gala by a St. Williams alum actress Kim Novak. The church also had ashtrays made as a consolation prize for those who did not have the winning ticket.

There is a nice segment explaining how the house came to be on WTTW's Ask Geoffrey.

The tray measures 6" x 3". Smoke color with the mid century mod home in whites, blues and corals. No chips or cracks to either tray. The listing is for one tray only.
