Product Description

A superb, original fairground sign…

Dating to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1970s, this is an original hand painted sign as used on a skid car ride. The sign would have been part of several that would have graced the inner section of the ride, instructing customers about skid cars and the rules. Painted on a thick piece of wood, the sign is vibrant and colourful on the eye. Although this piece is showing its age, we simply love the surface patina and the rustic and used look

As a statement piece, this would look ace graced on a wall in one’s home, or a retail setting. For the fairground enthusiast or restorer, this could also been a cool project. The centre circle would have usually housed the logo or initials of the showman who owned the ride, which for us suggests this may have been a spare for the ride itself, and never used…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There is a weathered finish in general, with surface scars and abrasions, paint chipping and some tatty wood in areas. Structurally the piece is in good shape, albeit it’s a little little tatty and dirty in places. One will note that the bottom wooden section of the circle is looking a little tired, but we feel this simply adds to the charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
