From the Looff circa 1909 mixed menagerie carousel parted out from Whalom Park, in Lunenburg, MA. In the jumping position, the all wood horse carries its delicate glass-eyed head on a gracefully arched neck with a long flowing mane having a flipped up forelock. A parrot cantle saddle rests on a fringed blanket while carved fringe and incised lozenges decorate the double breastband and matching breeching. The name "Marie" is painted on the bridle. The figure retains its step-up, bit and stirrup hangers and presents in the untouched paint and condition it possessed on its last working day on the carousel. 52 long x 56 high, 36 chest to rump.
