Two lovely antique mid-20th Century carved wood and hand-painted ark carousel horses, c1940-50. We don't think they are a pair or came from the same ride, as there are subtle differences in appearance - although we could be wrong.

They are beautifully composed, carved and painted in typical fairground colours, and have areas of metal embellishment and leather saddles. We would describe both as being in good original condition commensurate with age and use.

There are areas of age-related wear and areas of loss to the paintwork/wood - but all minor and in keeping with expected use. The leather seats have aged nicely through wear, and there are small areas where there are woodworm holes - long dormant, but treated anyway.

Overall the horses are exactly as you would expect from genuine examples of this age. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact us with any questions or if you would like to view the items.
