This set of silver spoons are souvenirs from the 1933 Chicago Worlds Fair which was named The Century of Progress.
Each spoon is highly decorated. The handle reads 1933 Century of Progress on the front and on the back both have pictures labeled the Hall of Progress. The mouths are also designed with buildings from the event.
These spoons were made by the Oneida Co and are marked on the back
They measure 6" long and could use a polish which I will leave to the discretion of the buyer.

A Century of Progress International Exposition was a World's Fair registered under the Bureau International des Expositions (BIE), which was held in Chicago, as The Chicago World's Fair, from 1933 to 1934 to celebrate the city's centennial. 
The theme of the fair was technological innovation. The fair's motto was "Science Finds, Industry Applies, Man Adapts", giving out a message that science and American life were wedded.
Its architectural symbol was the Sky Ride, a transporter bridge perpendicular to the shore on which one could ride from one side of the fair to the other.
One description of the fair noted that the world, "then still mired in the malaise of the Great Depression, could glimpse a happier not-too-distant future, all driven by innovation in science and technology." Fair visitors saw the latest wonders in rail travel, automobiles, architecture and cigarette-smoking robots. The exposition "emphasized technology and progress, a utopia, or perfect world, founded on democracy and manufacturing"
