An Original Vintage Theatrical Tri-Folded English Three-Sheet Stage Play Poster (3sh; measures 41" x 85" [104 x 216 cm]) (Learn More)
Robinson Crusoe, the circa 1930s English stage play production. There are two three-sheet posters (plus a double crown) for this (we assume they are all from the same production, although they have very different artwork; one features cool artwork of a very sexy female with a hunting rifle, and the other shows a female with a colorful bird, and both posters also feature stereotypical artwork of the island native Friday. Note that our consignor wants to make it very clear that he in no way condones artwork of this sort, and recognizes that it was done back at the time when this poster was produced, but certainly, we all hope we will never see this type of stereotype artwork again)! A collector from England tells us he believes that this poster (and the other English stage play posters from other classic fairy tales) were used for local Christmas pantomimes (that were very professional productions) that were held all over England for many years. Most of the posters were produced by Taylors of Wombwell from 1929 to the late 1930s (but it seems likely that the posters we are auctioning date from the late 1930s). It was quite common in those pantomimes for women to play boys' roles, and for men to play the roles of unlikeable women (like witches and mean old ladies!). If anyone knows more about this play or this poster, please e-mail us and we will post it here.
Important Added Info: Note that this English three-sheet was printed in 3 sections designed to overlap. This three-sheet poster was tri-folded only (which means there is one less vertical machine fold than usual). This means the poster has a significantly lesser number of folds than with three-sheets folded in the "regular" way, which is nice! Tri-folded three-sheets need to be sent in an oversized flat package, which measures roughly 13" x 30", so they cost more to send than regularly folded three-sheets, especially if they are sent to non-U.S. addresses.

Overall Condition: very good to fine. The poster was tri-folded only and has the most minor of fold and border wear, but is overall in excellent condition! (Learn More)
