This whimsical antique carousel horse is from Austria circa 1890.  On the petite side, this carousel horse can fit just about anywhere in your home.  This horse is masterfully hand-carved and painted.  The paint does show wear and some loss, but with age, a beautiful patina has also developed.  Glass eyes and a horsehair tail are the finishing touches on this rare find.
