Circa 1890s, from the Charles Looff carousel works and posed in
an unusual pacing gait. An extended neck, crested with a flowing
mane carved in high relief and accented with several
interstices, supports a glass eyed head having flaring nostrils
and a buckled bridle. The saddle with elongated cantle and
double flap is girthed over a richly carved and fringed blanket.
Further trappings include a double breastband composed of a
deeply scalloped band layered over a grooved under stratum.
Professionally restored in a palette of a dapple grey body with
trappings in vibrant primary colors enhanced with gold. 51 long
x 42 high, 37 chest to rump.
