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.
