We are pleased to be able to offer for sale a wonderful vintage all original Sideshow Banner or Panel with the wooden supports for the Schoenhut Humpty Dumpty Circus.  The sideshow panels are one of the most desirable and hard to find pieces of the Schoenhut Humpty Dumpty Circus line of toys.  This panel we are offering is in remarkable condition with beautiful bright colors. The banner was advertised as “new” in the 1928 Schoenhut Humpty Dumpty Circus catalog that we have (see photo #10).  The catalog is not included in the sale.  The brightly colored lithograph on muslin fabric depicts the various freak shows of post turn of the century American circus traditions.  The two piece base with upright dowels and the lithograph panel are all original and without repair! The muslin fabric has some minor staining and wear, the most noticable on this panel is some scattered stains along the very bottom in the cream colored section on the back side of the panel that show through lightly on the front and a small dark stain in the very upper right corner in the sky.  Please look over the photos carefully as they will provide the best physical description. This great piece could be used as a backdrop to compliment your Schoenhut Circus character collection or to complete an existing collection. The panel measures about 40” wide by 17” tall by itself and with the supports it measures overall 50 1/4” wide by 17 5/8” tall.  Display your collection in front of this panel or stand it alongside your circus tent to complete the look. It will really make your circus come to life!  We will also be offering for sale in separate listings the other Schoenhut Sideshow Panel as well as the rare huge 1928 oval (44”x 18” x 28”tall ) Circus Tent so save us to your favorite sellers and check back often!  The two piece base with dowels will pull apart and the banner can be removed by just untying the strings from the base and the entire setup can be stored in an area as small as 27" x 6" x 6" for when it's not in use.  PLEASE REVIEW ALL PHOTOS AND USE THE ENLARGE AND ZOOM FEATURES FOR THE BEST DESCRIPTION OF THIS WONDERFUL EARLY SCHOENHUT CIRCUS SIDESHOW BANNER.
