This is one cute child's carousel ride in the form of a Turkey Gobbler. The ride is in wonderful condition and is from the end of the 19th century. The ride is French or German and more than likely was on a full carousel called the "Menagerie" which was an all animal ride.
The turkey is gesso painted and there is very minor loss to the wonderful old surface. There is a sturdy original iron mount on the bottom and we have mounted him on an iron stand with pole. The ride 25" long and 27" tall and 8" wide. There is also an iron hand hold loop on the top so the young ones can hang on.
I am always amazed at the detail on the children's ride and this one does not disappoint. It is in original condition with some touch up to the paint slightly noticeable around the fabric seat.
