This is an amazing magic poster from the 1920’s for Carter the Great. The featured act titled the Vanishing Sacred Elephant is rendered in incredible detail and color. It also features the portrait of the magician himself, complete with ornate turban and feathers.
This is an original antique poster that was never used, so the condition is exceptional. That is correct, never displayed, mounted or framed. The colors are bold and bright, just like the day it was printed. This is an 8 sheet poster that consist of four thin paper panels. Each panel is in their original folded format. The poster came from a private collection and has been stored in its original state since the beginning. A truly great find!
Poster collectors, here is your chance to own a 100 year old pristine poster with spectacular color and design. Magicians and magic enthusiast will covet this large scale poster form a world renown magician from a bygone era. To me this is fine art from the golden age of stone lithography. Imagine this framed and hanging in your home. Definitely a statement piece!
