Early Carnival Automobile Ride Original Hand-Painted Rounding Board

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Fantastic early hand-painted carnival rounding board with a great automobile and pub theme. Most likely from the UK and likely Spooner. This would have been one of a series of panels that would be installed around the upper part of the ride. Please see photos for paint condition. Email with any questions about condition. We have two other panels from the same carnival ride. Both with great automobile related subject matter.
