2 Mid 20th Century Carved Wood Hand Painted Fairground Ark/Carousel Horses, c1940
About the item: Two lovely Antique mid 20th century carved wood and hand painted ark carousel horses, c 1940-50. I don't think they are a pair/came from the same ride as there are subtle differences in appearance, but I could be wrong. They are beautifully composed, carved and painted in typical fairground colours and have areas of metal embellishment and leather saddles. I 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 of woodworm holes, long dormant but treated anyway. Overall exactly as you would expect from genuine examples of this age. Please refer to the detailed photographs and feel free to contact me with any questions or if you would like to view the item.
