Space Age carnival ride seat in the shape of an UFO, made by L' Autopede Belgium. This handmade metal 2-seat carousel ride object is in science fiction style and an awesome piece of carnival art. An astronautics shuttle for 2 children, still complete with antenna and gun after many years of use and fun. This space travel carnival ride dates from to late 1950s, from 1958. It's the smallest version which has been made and also a very rare model to find. During the years of use, this flying saucer has been repainted what explains the very beautiful condition. Did you see the eagle on the American flag? A custom made cover to protect the UFO by transport is included. (Has traces of age and use). Note: if you see wheels under, that's from a trolley, they are not attached to the ufo. Under the ufo there are 4 iron legs to Stand on.
