IS A SUPER RARE 18" PORCELAIN RINGLING BROTHERS SIGN. THIS IS ACTUALLY USED TO GO ON THE HEAD DRESS OF A RINGLING ASIAN ELEPHANT.

MY BROTHER IS A RETIRED PORCELAIN SIGN MAKER , AND RINGLING BROTHERS WAS ONE OF HIS COMPANIES CLIENTS. HE WAS ABLE TO KEEP PRODUCTION RUN SAMPLES OVER THE YEARS. THIS WAS NEVER USED. STILL LIKE NEW.

THIS PORCELAIN SIGN IS A BUTTON, IT HAS A SLIGHT CURVATURE WHICH BOWS OUT TOWARDS THE CENTER.

THESE ARE EXTREMELY RARE TO COME BY, THEY OFTEN GET RUINED IN THE CIRCUS WORLD, I'VE SEEN SOME AFTER USE, THEY GET VERY SCRATCHED, STAINED, AND BENT.

I HAVE ONLY EVER SEEN A COUPLE OFFERED UP FOR SALE OVER THE YEARS AND OF COURSE THEY WERE ON EBAY. MY BUY IT NOW PRICE IS LESS THAN WHAT THEY SOLD FOR.

ITEM WILL SHIP WORLDWIDE, SHIPPING FOR OVERSEAS IS $55.00 AND 22.00 IN THE USA.

EMAIL WITH ANY QUESTIONS, THANKS.
