Juvenile Fairground Carousel Horse3

Juvenile Fairground Horse

A cool metal horse, thought to be from a juvenile fairground ride, circa mid part of the 20th century…

SKU: RC0537.

Product Description

A rather unusual model horse…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it would date to the mid part of the 20th century. We believe this may have originally been part of a toy rocking horse, but equally understand from its previous owner that it was later used on a kids fairground ride

What we can tell you is that it is a charming piece. Standing just over 50cm’s in height, the horse is made in a thin metal with complementary wooden legs. We think the horse has been ‘over-painted’ in its current form, as we can see some Blue paint seeping through in areas. It has a great look and is certainly a nice size for display in ones home…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. Structurally the horse is good and solid and perfectly ‘free stands’. There are some surface scars and abrasions across the piece and some paint chipping, yet otherwise it is offered in nice condition. The hair on the mane and tail is a little tatty, yet we feel it simply shows the age and authenticity of this piece. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
