The Coconut Sheet, or Coconut Shy, is a staple of the English country fair – in the 19th century, a coconut was an exotic and special prize.
Seth Carter designed and built his own Coconut Sheet in the tradition of countless showmen before him. The hanging sign at the back is made of canvas, with the letters appliquéd in the traditional style.
