Mid-20th Century English Fairground Double sided Sign
We are proud to offer a highly decorative mid-20th Century English fairground double sided hand painted sign. This sign is big as you can see from the measurement however a great size for a cool interior space, man cave or over a bed if you feel risky. This sign would have hung directly over the main entrance to one of the main fairground attractions, “The Dodgems”. What makes this sign is that it reads SUPER DODGEMS, painted on both sides with one side instructing customers with directions to get on the ride. The typical English early 20th century fairground typography style has been well present across this item still displaying its original layered paint using vivid and vibrant colours.
Size in inches approx.: H 29” x W 82” x D 0.5”
Date: 1950 - 1960
Units: 1
Condition: This item is completely solid in structure and form using a 0.5 thick wooden hard board, wear across its surface and aged patina is present due to age and outside use as you may expect. The paint is worn in sections showing additional scratches and fading is sections. Some hanging holes are broken and as a result sections of the panel have cracked away as shown in the photos provided, there are 2 holes either side that could be incorporated to hang this item if you so wish.
