This is a full size carousel rocking horse in a jumping pose, made from solid wood with carved flowers, wooden base, rockers are removable, brass pole and hand painted.
Trappings are composed of a simple saddle with notched flap resting on a bordered saddle blanket, a deep breastband having slipped and leaved roses carved in high relief and complementary roses depending from the saddle cantle. A buckled bridle with glass jewel restrains the head.
The horse is very similar to one of a production line of styled rocking horses and carousel horses manufactured by American Carousel Works/S&S Woodcarvers of Santa Anna, CA.
This rocking horse has no defects, missing paint or scratches (all details are clearly visible in the images). This carousel rocking horse is ready to ride by both children and adults!
It takes up residence near Detroit, MI - perhaps you can come pick it up and save $$.
"This piece was given to me on trade for work I did (I'm a home improvement contractor). Since my kids are too old to enjoy it and I'm not into interior design, I know someone would appreciate having this beautiful carousel horse.
The people who gave this to me bought it new and it was very expensive. The mother was a collector of rocking horses so her children bought it for her."
