    Description

    Gypsy Rose Lee Vintage Las Vegas Desert Inn Jumbo Concert Poster. An original cardboard window card advertising the legendary "Star of Radio - Stage - Screen" burlesque entertainer Gypsy Rose Lee playing for two weeks at the Desert Inn located in Las Vegas, Nevada. We can't pin the exact year down, but it's circa 1950's-early 60's. This four-color board of yellow, white, blue and white shows a captivating image of the star. The rarity here is that one almost never sees a concert poster from Sin City; they simply weren't used by the casinos for advertising.

    Measures 22 ¼" x 28" and grades to Very Good Plus condition with bumped corners, spots of soiling along the left side, a large horizontal fold mark through the center, and a 1" tear in the upper center portion. COA from Heritage Auctions.
