The tower is 300m high and consists of an open iron framework making it the highest manmade structure in the world at the time when it was made in 1889. It was the largest attraction at the Exposition and today it remains the most recognised structure in all of Europe. Handcast in solid, lead-free pewter, each of our pins is an original three dimensional sculpture signed by the artist, Jim Clift. Individually packaged on one of our signature presentation cards, our pins arrive ready for gift giving! Handcrafted in our studio in Coventry, RI, our pins are 100% US made.
