Product Description

A stunning fairground sign painted by the talented Euge Sloan…

This fairground sign is one of our unique collection that is exclusive to Ralph & Co. in limited numbers

This particular sign by Euge is a personal homage too his favourite fairground artists; Edwin Hall and Fred Fowle. Euge has given the work some of his own style and flourish and based this piece on the motoring images which the ride builders ‘Lakins’ were using on their Speedway Arks and Dodgem tracks in the 1930’s…
Unlike the plentiful retro printed reproduced signs that have flooded the market, this sign is the real deal. This can be used as a retro talking point, but it could also be used on a fairground today (on the right equipment). The materials and the processes used, and the handcrafted nature is similar to that of how the signs were produced back in the day…

The sign is made from exterior grade plywood (as originally used on the fairgrounds) and features two coats of primer on the front, plus one coat of undercoat. It also features ‘sign writers’ enamel paint

Euge is a creative genius who has been hand painting fairground rides and signs since the 1970’s. His work is very well known, and lots of his original pieces are held in personal collections and are in high demand. This particular sign has recently been used for a personal display, but is in ‘as new’ condition

With original fairground memorabilia being one of the most sought after items at the moment, there is no better time to get your hands on this unique piece of hand painted art work

This sign is personally signed by Euge on the reverse…
