Rare Set of 7 Mid-20th Century English Fairground Carousel Panels

$2,109.27

About

A rare set of 7 mid-20th century English Fairground Carousel panels We are proud to offer a set of 7 mid-20th century English fairground carousel panels. These items would have been part of a large carousel fairground ride, they would have been positioned at the inner crown of the ride and been attached together to create a wonderful decorative pattern. These items are all individually handmade / painted and untouched on their original form. Recently obtained from a private fairground collector in the United Kingdom, they would bring an amazing visual look to any interior space or hallway. The backing boards are completely flat with original hinges still attached, the bottom section of the panels are angled and would have been positioned this way to joint together at the top of the ride with other panels. The color is still strong, and you can see underneath sections of the surface remnants of earlier painted sections (which is typical of fairground items of this nature). Its quite rare to get such a vast number in one sale as these usually come to market a singles and pairs. Size in inches approx.- H 34” x W 21” x D 1” Condition: These items are completely solid in structure and form, wear across surface and aged patina is present due to age and use, light chips and fading across the surface as shown in the photos provided. Its strongly suggested to review all the photos provided carefully and propose any questions where details are unclear before a purchase is made.
