Just in today this beautiful 19th century carousel horse, which has been converted into a rocking horse is a very special piece. With original paint, with some minor retouches, and wear and tear commensurate with a pre-loved life. Due to the quality of the carving and amount of detail this carousel horse was probably on the outer circle of the carousel, the inner horses being less visible were generally less detailed and less ornate.
As you can see the quality of the carving gives it a very life like and dynamic feel. This item won't be in the shop long so if you are interested get in touch soon.
