1186-9 - Daniel Muller - $12,250
Circa 1907 from the D.C. Muller & Bro. carousel works, Germantown, Philadelphia, installed at the Williams Grove Amusement Park in Mechanicsburg, PA and parted out in 1977. A beautifully carved ruff and lovely facial expression on the leaping elk illustrates Muller's mastery of fine details. The ornately designed saddle having a scrolled pommel with nicely detailed parrot heads at the cantle and a curvilinear skirt is girthed over a bordered blanket. The breastband and shoulder strap are pinned by a starred boss while the headstall displays a six lobed rosette. Restoration and paint by John Hughes and Lise Liepman. Glass eyes and natural bone antlers. See Marge Swenson, "Carrousel Art," Issue 11, October/November, inside back cover, for a photograph of the elk on the carousel. 49 long x 67 high.
