This is a wood-carved and painted Carousel Horse/IndianPony. It will make a wonderful decorative piece of art in your home or shop. Carved with colorful raised and indented layers. Perhaps as a result of Americas Bicentennial, and since the seventies, there has been a wonderful resurrection in carousel items. The body is brown hues, with cream; beautiful coloring and detail.The horse has beautiful patina. The saddle is an antiqued blanket of color, browns, and cream. There are big brown glass eyes, and no movable parts on the horse. The tail is real horse hair. It is unusual to find a wood-carved, hand-painted horse, not plaster, resin or fiberglass, that is well assembled and in fine condition. Wood carved horses do suffer stress cracks over time, yet this one has minimal stress cracks.
It did not seem to need it, as it looks and feels quite secure, but I did apply minimal glue. I was told the pony was made in the eighties.I have installed a small wooden stand on a weight to allow it to be free standing, a big benefit for display. I believe this is the original paint, no indication of a repaint.
Dimensions are 43L, 44H, and 10W. The horse weight is about 50 pounds.
Stand adds about 25ish pounds. To transfer to his new home, you could unscrew the four screws on his belly, and he will fit in the back seat of his car.Ou can arrange a shipper.
