To be pedantic this horse has spent his working life rotating in a clockwise fashion not the opposite - so more correctly should be termed a merry-go-round horse. Most probably carved and decorated in the first quarter of the 20th century but with time has become a little weather beaten.
His small size is significant as he is typical of the hand cranked dobby-horses that were often seen in days gone by displayed on juvenile merry-go-rounds.
Though he may now have a flaky paint surface - permanent is his pride, emanating from a whirlwind heritage - while his proud face is only eclipsed by the lustre in his eyes.
Mounted on a later pull-along stand.
