An Original Vintage Theatrical Tri-Folded English Six-Sheet Stage Play Poster (6sh; measures 81" x 81" [206 x 206 cm]) (Learn More)
Babes in the Wood, the circa 1930s English stage play production. The posters feature really cool artwork (one three-sheet has a well-dressed female knight with two small children in the woods, another three-sheet features sleeping children and birds, the six-sheet has a great image of two small children in the woods with living trees menacing them, and the British quad has two small children watching two men dueling with swords)! 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: It is interesting to note that the artwork on this poster is very close in nature to that of the art of Snow White and the trees from the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, so it seems likely this poster dates from around the time of that film's release in 1937 or possibly a little later! Note that this English six-sheet was printed in 6 sections designed to overlap. This six-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 six-sheets folded in the "regular" way, which is nice! Tri-folded six-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 six-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)
