A wonderful original fairground canvas.
A beautiful & very unusual piece of fairground art of epic proportions, handpainted with some stunning detail & mounted in a thick ebonised mahogany bullnose frame. Depicting a spectacular Victorian fairground scene which includes The Ashley's Golden Gallopers steam powered carousel, a large traction engine, hot chestnut vendor, a game & provision merchant's and a helter-skelter & ferris wheel in the background. Purchased from one of the finest collections of fairground memorabilia we've ever seen, a very special item.
Early 20th century
Wear commensurate with age, with the canvas showing expected minor signs of age in places, very good overall with plenty of wear & tear, displays beautifully with the colours remaining vivid. Frame & mount later, excellent quality & a heavy item which will require a good strong hanging kit if it is to be wall mounted.
Collection preferable, UK courier service possible , please enquire for details.
