Summary/Abstract: The Balkan States Exhibition mounted in London in 1907 was the greatest international presentation, both as regards the quantity and the quality of its exhibits, of Serbian products and achievements from the fields of industry, agriculture, science, arts and culture held up to that time. The total number of visitors exceeded a million and two hundred thousand people. A large number of Serbian products was awarded high prizes and special commendations. It was shown that many Serbian goods (woollen cloths, furniture, prunes, marmalade, drinks) could compete successfully with the products of eminent European producers. The London Exhibition marked in a sense a comeback of Serbia after the three-year long isolation following the assassination of King Aleksandar Obrenovi} and his wife.
