Product Description

A beautiful, hand painted depiction of a fairground car…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1990s. Hand painted on a wooden board, the painting is vibrant and colourful on the eye. The reverse shows that this piece was painted by London artist, Derick Piper. “Derick has been a commercial artist since the age of 16, and after working with some of the worlds’ best known advertisers, this gave him a unique view of the world, as depicted in much of his work”. Reference, Wikipedia

This is a charming painting and we suggest it is designed to depict an original rounding board from the dodgems ride. Originally found on Sam Crow’s dodgems in circa 1930s, the rounding boards were specifically commissioned to renowned artist Edwin Hall. The original pieces fetch big money, so it’s nice to see a good depiction of the original piece, albeit it’s naively painted and finished…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The painting shows signs of usage, therefore there are some surface scuffs and abrasions across the piece, along with some paint chipping and some tatty areas in places. That said, in general it’s in very nice original condition, and oozes charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
