Own a beautiful piece of timeless art from a bygone era and a simpler time. A unique decoration that will revive memories of boardwalks, amusement rides, cotton candy and frozen custard.
We are building our retirement home, and so regrettably it’s time to part with our beloved carousel horses. They were the hits of birthdays, holidays and photo sessions with family and friends, and prominent fixtures in our homes for over 30 years. Now our kids are grown and have no room for them in their city apartments.
We have 4 horses and all are hand carved antiques from the C.W. Parker Company from the early 1900’s. The horses can be lifted off the heavy brass poles and laid flat for easy transport. C.W. Parker was one of the well-known carvers making carousels at the time, and is featured in Charlotte Dinger’s book, The Art of the Carousel. These are all outside row horses, which were the most elaborately decorated because they were the most visible when the carousel was spinning.
This “Hunter” horse is an outside row jumper which was fully and beautifully restored by the American Carousel Museum in Sandusky, OH in exchange for allowing the horse to be displayed there. This horse is resplendent in blue, silver and gold and has 8 large jewels on the side, front and bridle. There is a gun and dagger carved on the side, a wood tail, a rabbit under the saddle, and a rabbit on the cantle (back of saddle). The horses are priced to sell, and well under appraised value. We are also including the brass poles, which we paid $600 for each. Must be picked up in Ponte Vedra. The horses can be lifted off the brass poles and laid flat for easy transport.Listing ID: 2735da21eb2b696b
