Antique Fairground Carousel Folk-art Support Panels (signed) very rare artefact
For sale in this LOT is an original signed very rare fairground carousel inner decorative set of 4 hand painted panels. These items don’t come on the market often and we have been very lucky to get hold of this perfect concertina panel. The items are also signed E. COOKE HYDE CHESHIRE which makes them that much special and collectable for the true fairground collector. The item do close and open as originally designed (shown in the photos provided). The item are aged dated 1905 so please expect wear and tear in both the condition of the wood and overall look and feel so please review all the photos provided. The item is painting in wonderful original paint and hand painted graphics including the pictures of the horses. The surface is aged and worn but still shows great antique colour even if slightly faded. These items would have originally kept outside most of their lives so expect the wood to also be effected. Overall a wonderful folk art antique fairground artefact, which due to the signature makes this item super rare and a one off. You will not find another one on the current antique market that we can assure you of.
