Summer Carousel (From the Carousel Collection) – The English Ladies
The collection of Carousel figures continues to gallop along with two new installments, Summer Carousel and Fairground Attraction. These new figures have once again been inspired by the magic of the fairground carousel.
Musical horse rides date back to the Middle Ages but is was in the 19th century that the advent of steam and advances in engineering brought the carousel as we know it today to the forefront, combining a horse that went up and down against a barley twist pole with a rotating circular platform.
Exciting yet elegant, the carousel was favored by fashionable ladies as their gowns and hats could be revealed to dramatic effect as they posed against the flamboyant carved and decorated horses.
Limited to a quantity of 750, each figurine is hand numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
