Painted wood with metal hooks
13.5 x 10.75 inches each
$2,100, the pair

A pair of brightly colored two-sided painted wood carnival game signs that each hang with two metal S-hooks. One pair reads “We Pay You Play” on one side and “You Can Win” on the other. The other pair reads “Anyone Can Play” backed with “O.K. It’s a Winner.” The signs are shaped and painted to resemble a rolled piece of paper. Each side has a yellow background with black letters highlighted in orange, with red and green shading and orange decoration to enhance the trompe-l’oeil effect.

Condition:  Generally very good with the usual overall expected wear, weathering, handling, toning to paint surface. Some minor chips and losses to wood. Some irregular bending to S-hooks.
