This stunning Carousel horse is magnificent in stance and exceptional in artistic detail. Solid and heavy wood, pieced hand carving, real horse hair tail, mounted on a thick, square base this was probably a stander on a carousel, meaning it did not move. Fiery stance with golden mane, glass eyes, beautiful purple, cobalt and gold colors on a bright white base, this horse was refurbished in 1992 by a very good artist, breathing new life into this handsome animal. There are no original marks or stamps to identify, it was procured from a private party who told the history of purchase in the 1940s by the family for retail décor in their toy shop in Kansas City. This horse is very heavy (200+ lbs) and may need to be re-secured on the base if it is moved a lot. Very good condition with a couple of notes: The right ear has a chip (see pics), the seam of the right rear leg is obvious and may need to be filled in eventually. C1940s, measures 44 inches long x 50 inches tall x 23 inches wide.
