      Yeah, that looks like a scarce one. I collect vintage posters and have some Circus but haven't seen this one surface. The paper looks correct, is it linen backed? What is the white border around the edges?? Cool poster.

      @epson -Thanks for the resources. @zguy - It's a paper poster mounted on cardboard.

      Bad combination! That was going to be my second guess. If this truly is an original poster, you should have it professionally removed ASAP and professionally mounted onto linen for preservation. Mounting vintage posters onto cardboard is one of the worst things you can do to a poster, the acid in the cardboard will surely destroy what is left of this poster. email me if you would like more information and contacts of professional linen backers, I am always happy to help

      This poster, for George and Herbert Pinder, probably dates to about 1900. George and Herbert Pinder were the grandsons of founders George and William Pinder, two Englishmen who founded their show about 1854 and took it to France, where this poster was produced, and where the show changed names to Cirque Pinder. George and Herbert were horseback jugglers and - as seen here - musical clowns. They later took over management of the circus, which was sold by the Pinder family in the early 1920s. The circus has continued in the decades since under various ownership and formats. For many years it was the most successful circus in western Europe.

      I recently acquired this poster of The Pinder Bros which is in very good condition. I have looked every where on the internet to find information on the poster. Does anyone know the value of this poster? If it is valuable, I would like to know so I can take the necessary steps to preserve it. Thank you for any replies. Nick
