A lovely study of Cooke's silver shetland circus ponies at Bertram Mills. Ink and wash on paper. Signed and inscribed 'Cookes Ponies, BM'. 10 ins x 7 ins.
Our research has revealed that one of Chipperfields main acts (circa 1930/1940) was Cooke's Silver Shetland ponies. They also appeared at Bertram Mills and the Royal Britannic Circus around the same time (the later was a topping show and consisted mostly of Chipperfields acts and presentations).
