Product Description

A rare and stunning original fairground carousel horse…

Dating to the mid to latter part of the 20th century, circa late 1970s, this beautiful carousel horse would have graced a juvenile fairground carousel ride in pairs, along with some complimentary chariot style seats…

Made in fibreglass and hand painted, the horse has a stunning ornate look to it. The horse is painted in White with Gold or dark Brown shadowing and then Red and Blue fillers. Both the horse frame and stand are made from fibreglass and then there is a steel base with four holes, which would have originally allowed the horse to have been attached to the floor of the ride

The horse itself is in great condition. Great original paint, structurally sound and a lovely patina left after years of exposure to the elements. The horse perfectly ‘free stands’, therefore this is an ideal statement piece for your home, or equally as a shop window display in a retail environment

We are offering this horse in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some  surface scratches, scuffing and chips to the paint work. There are also some small chipped areas to the frame, yet we do not believe they are detrimental to the overall structure and look and feel. Please do study the photos as it would be difficult to highlight all of the minor imperfections

Please note : We currently have two identical horses available
