Meister Nadelohr's Zirkus (Meister Nadelohr is the main character of an East German television program that aired in the 1960's. The name roughly means Master Tailor Eye of the Needle. The little orange character is Pittiplatsch, a puppet representing a fictional kobold character. The kobold is a sprite well known in German folklore.) We believe these characters appeared in Zirkus Busch. It was a large circus program specifically for children. A list of the characters appears as does the admission price and the days the circus will play. The poster measures approx. 23" wide x 33" high. This is a rare and unusual poster depicting characters that were beloved by everyone in East Germany. The poster has a 3" tear along the lower edge. There is tape residue and small nicks.
