Signature above is from your banner - Below for Compairson

 


I purchased a double sided sideshow banner by Fred Johnson. I was wonder how I go about trying to get it authenticated?

 

Any help would be great!

 

Thank you in advance.


Best Regards,

Jay

 

Hi Jay,

 

I have contacted Mark Frierson about your banner, Mark is a well known banner and gaff artist.   This is what he says about your banner.

 

My best guess that it was used for an oddities show, geek show, or a combination thereof. 

 

The backside, which is obviously not a Johnson, is unknown to me.

I have include some  images of Fred Johnson signature for your comparison.  Also all banner that say O-Henry Tent and Awning Chicago ILL. were painted by Johnson.

 

I hope this is helpful,
