English Ladies Co. The Merry Go Round

Current Stock:

This new figurine is the second in Celtic Ladies Company's limited edition series inspired by the magic of fairground carousel rides. Musical horse rides date back to the Middle Ages but it was in the 19th century that the advent of steam and advances in engineering brought the carousel as we know it today to the fore, combining a horse that went up and down against a barley twist pole with a rotating circular platform.

Exciting yet elegant, the Carousel was favoured by fashionable ladies, as their gowns and hats could be revealed to dramatic effect as they posed against the flamboyant carved and decorated horses.

Each figurine is hand numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Made from fine bone china and hand made and hand decorated.

Gift boxed.

Size H. 25cm.
