An Original Vintage Theatrical Linenbacked English Double Crown Stage Play Poster (DC; measures 20" x 30") (Learn More)

the circa 1900s (1900-1910) English silent stage play production of The Forty Thieves. This poster features cool artwork of an Arabian female (possibly a female Ali Baba?)! Note that this poster is similar to 1930s English stage play posters we have sold which are also based on classic fairy tales. Those posters were used for local Christmas pantomimes (that were very professional productions) that were held all over England for many years. In those pantomimes, it was common for women to play boys' roles, and for men to play the roles of unlikeable women (like witches and mean old ladies!). Therefore, it seems quite possible that this poster is from a much earlier pantomime, but also with a woman playing the lead role. If anyone knows more about this play or this poster, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
If you know who did the art (if any), please let us know.
