1910 Vintage Circus Wagon Sign with Eagle



This original circus wagon sign recently sold on eBay for $ 364.99. The seller describes the consigner as having bought an entire wagon that was manufactured in 1910, but the only part worth saving was this sign.

Ooh - I wish I'd have seen this! I love circus/carnival stuff. Oh well - there's only so many hours in the day that one can troll on eBay.

Interestingly, the same seller has listed a folk art carved lion that apparently came from ANOTHER circus wagon from the 1880's! Wish I could have been at this auction where they were selling old wagons!

It's currently listed on eBay with a starting price of $ 100.00:
