Product Description

A stunning 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 horse would have been modelled on the original carved wooden carousel horse by the famous Orton and Spooner

The horse is beautifully hand crafted in fibreglass, then hand painted in some traditional fairground colours (although the Black is one we’ve rarely seen before and looks stunning). The horse is painted with different patterns on either side (as pictured). The horse is offered in used condition, yet structurally great 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 and a some paint chipping in areas. There are also a few small cracks 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…
