Product Description

A beautiful fairground carousel horse…

Dating to the latter part of the 20th century, circa 1990s, this is a hand made carousel horse modelled on an original cast by Anderson, from the early 1900’s. Although several of these were made back in 1980s/1990s, they are becoming rarer to find and becoming quite the collectable piece. This particular horses’ condition won’t be for all, but we love the distressed look and the current patina…

The horse is beautifully hand crafted in fibreglass, then hand painted in some traditional fairground colours. You’ll note that a lot of the original paint work has faded or is a little tatty, yet it has left a rather ‘shabby’ feel to the horse and a distressed look that one would struggle to create themselves – we just love it. The horse is offered in used condition, yet structurally good and it will perfectly ‘free stand’ for all kinds of functional things, if not just for decorative purposes…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the entire piece is strong and happily ‘free stands’. There are some surface scars and abrasions, paint loss and chipping majorly across the horse. There are also a few cracks and chips in the fibreglass, yet nothing that is detrimental to the structure or indeed the overall look and feel. We feel the current condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
