Paint Decorated Traveling Carnival Shooting Gallery Countertop Sign

Circa Mid 20th Century: Carnival shooting gallery signs are hard to find, and this 1950s six-color cutout painted wooden folk art countertop shooting gallery sign in original paint decoration is a real eye catcher that takes one back to childhood summer evenings at the local fair. This graphically pleasing sign measures 21" long, 10.5" tall, and 8" deep when its folding arm is extended. There is no telling how many carnival sharpshooters were lured by the chance at winning the prize of their choice for the low, low cost of a single nickel. Today, signs such as this one let us return to the exciting nostalgia of our youth: the sugary aroma of cotton candy and funnel cakes, the long arc of the giant ferris wheel, the exact moment your first date squeezed tight the little stuffed gorilla you won for her with your sharp eye and steady hand.
