Hand-Painted Cigarette Prize Sign from Fascination Parlor, Nantasket Beach, Hull, Massachusetts - 28.5" x 16.5"
Here is a sign handpainted on board that once Hung in Fascination Parlor on Nantasket Beach in Hull, a still-operating gaming establishment! Fascination Parlor was established on Coney Island, New York in 1918, but relocated to its current location in Hull in 1945. This sign appears to have advertised prizes in the form of cigarettes for one of the parlor's games. It is handpainted and in good condition for its age, showing some signs of wear in the paint, as well as the beginning of a crack forming at the top of the board, and some puncture damage on the lower right side. This one of a kind sign is ready to hang with two mounting holes punched in the top.
