Universal Exhibitions Medals
Universal Exhibitions were World's fairs originating in the French tradition of
national exhibitions, a tradition that culminated with the French Industrial
Exposition of 1844 held in Paris. This fair was soon followed by other national
exhibitions in continental Europe, and eventually the United Kingdom. Many of
the dust covers on the pocket watches from the 1900s exhibit the Universal
Exhibitions Awards Medals.
