If you have a taste for unusual antiques---especially those in miniature---then this collection of mini circus paraphernalia is for you! The collection contains 9 pieces, including both circus advertisements and photographs of circus performers. This would look fantastic displayed in an attic, or peaking out from a drawer or box.

The pieces range in size from about .5" to 1"
These are high-resolution images printed on sturdy cardstock.


The collection includes:
-Barnes Circus color poster of lions and lion tamers
-circus strong lady color poster
-Klein Family Cyclers color postcard
-black/white photograph of conjoined twins
-black/white photograph of largest man and shortest man
-black/white carte de visite of lady performer with large hair
-black/white snapshot of tight rope walker in striped unitard
-black/white advertisement of lady riding a zebra
-**black/white photograph of two French dancers***

***The photograph of the two French dancers is reproduced from an original which is in my possession and one of my most prized possessions. It is one of a set of three, featuring the same two women in different dance poses. I discovered the originals at the antiquities market in the French town of Aix-en-Provence. Based on the clothing and hair, I would date it to the late 1930's, early 1940's---the eve of the French Occupation. Each photograph has an inscription in French. They seem to have been exchanged between the two women who were friends and "camarades artistiques." The inscription is visible in this mini reproduction, although too hard to read. It says, "A Line Michel avec ma profonde gratitude Mireille Dietrich." Translated, this means "To Line Michel with my profound gratitude. Mireille Dietrich." ***
