Product Description

A stunning fairground rocking horse…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe that it would date to the mid to latter part of the 20th century. This is a stunning piece, both elegant and charming…

An original juvenile carousel horse has been fitted to a ‘specially made frame’ to form a rocking horse. The horse is made in fibreglass and features its original paint. The vibrant colours and patterns really complement the Black base, and combined with the surface wear and tear, this piece oozes authenticity

The rocking horse frame is majorly made from wood and hand painted. There are also ‘painted steel supports’ and a brass pole that connects the horse and the frame together. Being a hand made piece, the craftsmanship is ace and culminates in a wonderful functional rocking horse or a statement display piece.  The horse sits perfectly (and securely) on the frame and moves with a seamless motion back and forth when pushed…

The entire piece is strong and durable and would happily seat a small child. That said, it isn’t overly heavy too so it is easy to move around…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and scars across the piece and some odd areas of paint chipping. It’s a little tatty and dirty too, but we feel these bits simply add to the charm and are not detrimental to the performance of the horse or indeed its look and feel. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
