A large and very rare hand painted composition figural advertising display of Josephine Baker in her legendary and scandalous banana skirt. The international sensation made its debut in the 1927 Follies Bergere show titled "Un Vent de Folie" and became Baker's signature costume. Likely French in manufacture, this is an antique and original burlesque era surviving advertising document, we have never seen another example and are certain few were manufactured and even fewer have survived.
