Three of many great circus posters on display this summer at the Shelburne Museum in Vermont.

Apparently The Ringling Brothers purchased the Barnum & Bailey Circus in 1907, but ran the circuses separately until they were finally merged in 1919.

Part of my summer 2010 east coast antiques tour.

    Hi, I recently purchased a ringling bros and Barnum&Baily combined shows-circus poster.The poster depicts a giant clown bent over tipping his hat while standing over the circus tents. I havent found any other posters like this one nor do I know the age of this piece. Can you identify this poster? Mesures 17" by 24" The bottom of this poster also looks to have had something attached at one time .

    I have a ringling bros barnum and bailey poster with "The beautiful graceful arenic queen mlle elena.
    The charming principal bareback equestrienne" written on it.
    I was wondering if it is worth anything and if I should send a pic.
    thank you

    Has anyone ever seen a large consolidation poster with an elephant head surrounded by other animals? Is it worth much? It is in kind of rough shape but displays ok.
