1900s Tivoli Gardens Circassian Horse Show - Original Vintage Poster

Used

Artist: M. Plinzner (signed in print)

Print: Lithography

Dimensions: 28.7 x 38.4 in (73 x 97.5 cm).

Condition: Good condition - despite its age the colors are remarkable well-preserved. Of cause the poster misses some paper on the edges and there is an old centerfold. My personal opinion is that the poster with its age looks great even with the missing paper on the edges. If you wish to restore the poster further it can be done quite easy as most of the newly added paper will mainly will need a beige color.

Country: Denmark

A very beautiful and rare original poster advertising a Circassian show in the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen, Denmark.

From research I know that a Circassian show passed by Tivoli in 1900 and I found an old black/white picture of the rider on the poster which I believe the poster artist used as inspiration.

The Danish text on the poster says:

"Tivoli from 14. July. The Circassians Squad, Caucasian Riders. (50 Men, Women and Children)".

The Circassians are a Caucasian ethnic group native to Circassia (now Russia, Georgia and Turkey) know for their horsemanship and riding skills.

Tivoli Gardens is one of the world most famous amusement parks. The park is the second oldest amusement park in the world is the most visited spot in Scandinavia.

This poster was collected directly from Tivoli and on the back it says it has been preserved during the 1970s. The conservation was made professionally and the paper sits well on the linen canvas.

I could not find a single similar poster online and I have asked among colleagues with years of experience in Danish poster. None of them have seen this poster before. There is little doubt that this poster is quite difficult to find a similar version of.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
