Product Description

A stunning fairground carousel horse…

Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s, this is an original hand made carousel horse made in fibreglass, and hand painted. Of USA origin, the horse comes complete with its original brass pole and mount from the carousel itself. It’s large, very well made and looks beautiful graced on its painted wooden base

This is one of three horse from the same carousel in our possession. This particular piece is offered in great condition and with a used patina. ‘Jet’ is mounted on a hand made wooden base (from reclaimed scaffold boards), to essentially act as the floor of the carousel (where the horse would have been mounted to). The horse if dismantled would actually form five parts; The horse, the removable brass pole, the steel pole (at the base), the removable stirrups and the base bracket. 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’ on the wooden base. There are some surface scars and abrasions and a some paint chipping in areas. There are also a few small minor 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…

Dimensions : Depth : 122cm, Width : 44cm, Height : 276cm (from the top of the brass pole to the bottom of the wooden base)

Please note : The brass pole does actually go out of the photo frame a little, so please see the above dimensions for the actually height

Condition : Structurally great, some surface marks and scratches, weathered patina in areas, some paint loss, some small cracks to the fibreglass
