ITEM #: 44006T Carousel Horse - Tan Mane Ornament by Old World Christmas
Material: Glass & Glitter
From Old World Christmas. Carousels started as machines
used to train horsemen in the
1600s. In 1662, a fanciful carousel
which rotated was created by an
inventive Parisian toy maker who
wanted everyone to enjoy the fun.
Over the centuries brass poles,
mirrors, jewels, lights, music,
fantastic hand-carved wooden
horses, and other creatures would
adorn these carousels. Beautifully painted, this white carousel horse with flowing tan brown mane has a rainbow colored saddle with matching stars and embellishments around the gold pole that extends in his middle.
