Fairground Chimpanzee

Large vintage hand painted fairground panel depicting a chimpanzee in a Beefeater outfit. Painted on a piece of plywood - it seems that it has at some point been (mistakenly) used as a back board whilst another piece of wood was being cut as there is some minor cutting damage to the lower section (see photos), but this does not detract from the decorative appeal of the piece. Believed to date from the 1970s, this is most definitely a one-off piece in good order with some obvious signs of age and use.

Measures: 122cm high x 58cm wide x 0.5cm deep
