1936 Historic Caravan For Sale

1936 Burlingham Living van.
(ex-Coco the clowns)

This showman`s caravan is of high quality, well engineered living accommodation; in its time, it was probably the best money could buy, attainable to only a few. It is therefore no wonder that Coco, the most famous and most successful clown of his era and beyond, would have required a caravan of this quality. he was one of the greatest celebrities before WW2 when `the circus coming to town` was a major event. It was Coco`s (Nicolai Poliakoff`s accomodation whilst working for the famous Bertram Mills Circus; A letter of authenticity dated 20/12/1979 from Poliakoff``s daughter, Tamara Hassani, is supplied with the caravan, together with other items of interest, including a copy of “Coco the clown by himself, Nicoli Poliakoff”, signed by Poliakoff that was written during the period he was using this caravan.

The pre-war Burlingham Showmans Caravan is built on a Leasons two wheeled, cable braked chassis. The beautifully constructed residence is fitted out with maple and mahogany interior with a rosewood ceiling. The built-in cabinets have attractive bright cut, polished glass installed, some of which have curved glass tear drop emblems which are matched on the exterior windows.
