Huge Hand Painted Banner

A very rare find. Large and unique vintage hand painted canvas backdrop depicting two cars on the coast.  We believe it dates from the late 1940s/early 1950s, showing an artist's impression of cars of the era, an orange Allard and a green Borgward.  Not sure of the origin but this piece would have been used as a carnival/fairground/theatre backdrop.  Needs a good clean and a little TLC, but would look even more stunning restored. There are numerous tears and old repairs - we've shown the most obvious in the images - but everything is there and could be properly repaired and cleaned. Amazing piece, atmospheric and a one off. We love it!
