Product Description

A fantastic original circus poster…

Dating to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1970s, this is an original circus poster for the famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus. The vibrant and colourful nature of the poster is really appealing, and the subject matter even better!

‘Ringling Bros. World’s Greatest Shows’ was a circus founded in Baraboo, Wisconsin, United States in 1884 by five of the seven Ringling brothers. The Ringling brothers were sons of a German immigrant, August Frederick Rungeling, who simplified his name to Ringling once in America. In 1907 Ringling Bros. acquired the Barnum & Bailey Circus, merging them in 1919 to become Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, promoted as The Greatest Show on Earth (Ref : Wikipedia)

The poster is original and comes with an authentic patina. There are a few surface scars and tears, yet they do not detract from the overall look and feel. We have had the poster professionally framed in glass, and it is easily wall mountable with the string and hooks on the reverse…

We are offering the poster in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The poster, dating to 1978 is circa 40 years old, therefore it does show a little age. Behind the glass, it looks like an art piece and would make a statement hung from your wall in your home. We’ve looked and can’t find another one for sale, yet all we could find were prints or reproductions. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
