19th Century Hand Painted Carved Wood Carousel Horse



19th century hand painted carved wood Carousel Horse is a splendid artifact of nostalgia, back when huge, brightly lit carousels were the centerpiece of traveling amusement parks, fairs and circuses during their heyday in the 19th century. This example shows plenty of honest wear from the hundreds of delighted children who rode it round and round to the sounds of organ music and the hustle and bustle of the entire experience. Note that a simple curved steel handle was provided, as opposed to the modern ones with seat belts and other safety features. Those were the days! circa 1880s. Measures: 30 H x 37 W x 8 D.
