There are four reproduced old time circus posters advertising different big name circus companies.
The four posters advertise the following circuses:
Ringling Bros World's Greatest Shows. Army of 50 Clowns
The Barnum and Bailey Greatest Show on Earth
Adam Forepaugh & Sells Bros Big United Shows
Al G. Barnes Wild Animal Circus
I purchased the set at an estate sale and was told they have always been housed in a large specialty folder. This folder, with the posters inside have been rolled and kept in a mailing tube for years. As a result, the posters have a curl to them and will need to be "pressed" into a flat position. If framed, that will take care of the curling. The back of the specialty folder states that they are reproductions of the original posters from the years of 1894 to 1925. All 4 posters are dated along the bottom with the reproduced year of 1960, making them close to 60 years old.
All posters measure about the same dimensions of 19 by 13.5 inches. The posters were made with a brownish coloring around the outer edges to make them look more authentic.
The front cover of the specialty folder reads "Old Time Circus Posters. Colorful, Authentic Reproductions".
The back of the specialty folder reads "The public is respectfully informed that these Circus Posters, eye feasts of beauty, are absolutely authentic reproductions, and they enamour all with unparalleled magnificence. The genius of Artists went into the designing of this cavalcade of advertising, all of which lavishly decorated board fences, walls and windows of tens of thousands of cities, towns, villages and hamlets all over the great U.S.A.. Circus posters are the most resplendent and spectacular form of advertising ever devised by man. This beautiful galaxy dates from 1894 (The Great Adam Forepaugh Shows) to 1925 (The Al G.Barnes Circus).

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT POSSIBLE PARTIAL REFUND OF SHIPPING CHARGES
Every January the postal service increases shipping charges. Previously, shipping charges were based solely on weight and a package cost the same amount regardless of where it was being shipped to in the United States. This year they went a bit overboard. Now, with this year's increase, the postal service has divided the United States in to 8 zones and all packages are charged by weight, size, and destination zone. Now it is not possible to state a shipping cost and have it be valid regardless if the package is traveling 2 miles or all the way to the east coast. This latest increase has added an additional .46 cents to up to $1.43 on packages. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
To complicate things even further, Google will not show items for sale unless they have a designated cost, or unless the seller uses calculated shipping. My web host is not equipped to figure calculated shipping, so I have to quote a shipping charge using the east coast as the final destination and then refund over payments. When I return the overage, I usually do so by including cash inside the package when it's shipped. My feedback page will show verification that I do return overpayments.
COMBINED SHIPPING INFORMATION
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased as long as all items can fit safely into a single box. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap and on top of that, this year Paypal started charging a currency conversion fee of 4.4%. International shipping now depends on the destination country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
