A superb original fairground horse of Dutch origin, converted into a feature light, circa 1940s…

SKU: RC01030.

Product Description

A quite charming wooden fairground horse with complimentary light feature…

Dating back to the early 20th century, this is a rare hand made cow from a juvenile fairground ride. Originating from Holland, this is one of 13 animals that featured on a ride called “De Hobbellende Geit”, or “The Rocking Goat”. This particular ride ran in its native country until the 1950s

Our ‘in house’ electrician has added seven perfectly placed light fittings and bulbs to the horse, to make this into a perfect mood or feature light. The horse itself show signs of age, yet it is structurally strong and can ‘free stand’ on its own. The patina is just wonderful across the original paint and iron fixings…

This particular piece is offered in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. Although structurally good, the horse does have surface marks and abrasions and some paint chipping. The patina is weathered, the wood is a little tatty and dirty in places yet we feel it simply adds to its authenticity and charm. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A wonderful piece of history and a true ‘one off’ with its incremental lighting feature…

Please note : The lighting elements have been professionally installed by a qualified and experienced electrician, using brand new factory parts and finishing with a PAT test (as of June, 2017)
