1196-9 - Orton & Spooner - $6250
Circa 1905 dragon head from the Burton-on-Trent, England carousel works of Orton & Spooner. Beautifully detailed fierce dragon heads comprised the forefront of many British "Switchback Railway" gondola cars. The ferocious dragon head with menacing teeth and serpentine tongue has a repair to one ear and a wonderful multi-layered paint history. 45 inches high. See Weedon & Ward, "Fairground Art." page 163 for photos of like items.
