I would personally estimate that this piece was originally made circa 1940’s – 50’s. 55 Wide (including the brackets for hanging). The antique store that previously owned it claimed that it was a piece which hung inside of the Apollo Theater in Harlem, NY. Back in the days when they spelled it “Theatre”, rather than “Theater” as it spelled today. I looked up some images of Apollo event posters from the 1940’s-50’s, and it was in fact very common to use the spelling “Theatre” during that period. Regardless of anything, it is an awesome looking piece! I have spent a lot of time looking all over the internet for another one like it, and haven’t found anything even close to it. I believe this is a true 1-of-a-kind / once in a lifetime type of item! Don’t Miss Out! Reasonable Offers Will Be Considered. Looks & Works Great!
