The Genuine 1902 E. Joy Morris Carousel Horse

This is the heirloom carousel horse hand-carved in 1902 by E. Joy Morris Carousel Company, renowned master-carvers of the world’s finest carousel horses. It is one of only two-dozen carved by E. Joy Morris from 1896 through 1902, an era known as the Golden Age of American carousel craftsmanship. Under the watchful eye of shop foreman Charles Leopold, the preeminent carousel carver of his generation, artists used mallets and chisels to carve blocks of basswood into the horse’s lifelike flowing mane, musculature, and alert stance. The "romance" side—the side of the horse that faced the audience as the carousel spun counter clockwise—features a bulldog peering out from under the saddle, possibly a caricature of the carver’s own pet and a classic, whimsical hallmark of Morris carousel horses. The horse was hand painted, adding rich detail to intricate details such as the tassels hanging from the saddle and the black and white lower legs. Includes a brass carousel pole and stand. Special conditions and guarantee limitations apply. Please call 1-800-227-3528 for details. 68" L x 59 3/4" H. (150 lbs.)
