Vintage Turtle Baby Carnival Sideshow Banner, circa 1930s-1940s

About

Fantastic turtle baby sideshow banner. Great colors and a nice manageable size. This banner was found outside of Chicago and most likely the work of Nieman Eisman of Nieman Studios. Nieman was one of the master banner painters in the Chicago style of sideshow banner painting. Eisman actively painted banners from the 1920s to the mid-1950s. Although unsigned, this banner has many of the same scrolling borders found in Nieman banners as well as similar hairstyles and faces.
