VINTAGE ORIGINAL 1945 RINGLING BROS RHINOCEROS CIRCUS POSTER W/OKC DATE TAIL NR:
$225

Here's a nice old original Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus poster with Oklahoma City date tail. The poster promotes "The Greatest Show on Earth, World's Biggest Menagerie." The Rhinoceros illustration is wonderful as are the bold and bright colors. The 28” x 30” poster (including date tail) is another wonderful poster from Mr. Jack Morris' personal collection. The illustrator "Bill Bailey" is printed at the bottom left. Although the date tail covers copyright and printer information, holding light behind, you can read across the bottom border "Copyright 1945 Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows, Inc. Litho In U.S.A." The Oklahoma City performance dates coincide with Ringling's route schedule for 1946. As the photo reflects, the old poster is in incredible condition for its age. There are old original fold lines and some bug spotting. Along the left border there is some edge wear, wrinkling and about a 1/2" water stain. The wrinkling area has been reinforced on the back with a strip of blue delicate surface tape. Along the top border, both corners have small thumbtack marks. Also along the top left border there is a small chip with missing paper. About two inches to the right of this chip is a 2" split. The split has been reinforced on the back with a small strip of archival-quality document repair tape. Along the right border is some edge wear, some with missing chips of paper, and there is some wrinkling. This area has been reinforced on the back with a strip of blue delicate surface tape. As the photo reflects, the date tail has scattered areas of brown water stains and there is edge wear and wrinkling along the left side. This is an early rare poster that has wonderful graphics and color. It will display nicely as is, but linen-mounted it would be a knockout.

I have other early circus posers listed from this collection. I will combine shipping when practicable. The poster will be shipped priority USPS in a heavy mailing tube.

E-mail any questions. Buyer has 14-day return privilege and is responsible for paying return shipping. International buyers are responsible for payment of any customs, duties and/or tax fees.
