This is a wonderful piece of 1920s era theatre advertising for a play at the Republic Theatre in New York City on 42nd St. It is mechanical, with the three thick cardboard leaves held together at the center with a metal grommet, but as you can see in the photos, when closed, only Abie's shows on the front and the theatre info shows open the back. When opened, you see the full. name of the famous play by Anne Nichols title Abie's Irish Rose, a play about an Irish Catholic girl and young Jewish man who marry despite their families' objections.

Closed, it measures 8 & 5/8 inches long and about 4 & 1/2 inches wide. Opened fully, it is almost 16 & 1/2 inches wide. Its got great color and detail and is in good sturdy working condition, but does have some foxing and it looks like some of the pink color ran as if it got damp. Its free of writing, though, and is a truly wonderful and unique old piece of theatre advertising, for what was a very popular play in its time and later a movie (twice) and a radio program.

Please see the photos as they show the condition and detail well.
