English Running Ostrich, circa 1900-1905. Unlike American carousels, English "roundabouts" rotated counter clockwise, so the "romance" side of their figures is the right side. Most English carousel figures have elongated bodies with double seats, and many menagerie figures have hinged necks for easy transport. This example has a comical facial expression and well carved body feathers. Older restoration, 62" long x 64" high.
