Charles Dare Carousel Horse circa 1885

Carousel horse made by Charles Dare


This horse is in good condition, currently it resides in Park Ridge, NJ.

  • Nose to tail - 49"
  • Back foot to ear - 57"

This charming Country Fair style carousel horse is attributed to the Charles Dare carousel factory in Brooklyn, NY.

The wooden white horse features a flowing mane, jumping pose, floating saddle, natural horsehair tail, glass eyes and a metal bit.

Although structurally sound, the horse has undergone restoration by an amateur and therefore the asking price is lower than average for this antique. All defects are clearly seen in the images.
