Rare antique carousel horse on original rocker

Rare antique carousel horse

I do not even know where to begin with this beautiful 19th Century carousel horse, she is from my own private collection. All the paint is original, I have never seen a carousel horse still on the original rocker before, I have actually ridden her myself !! There is a fantastic clicking noise from mechanism as you rock backwards and forwards. The stirrups on both sides are all original. I believe she could be by the maker Heyn (French) and will date around 1890. The wooden base that she stands on has been replaced as her original iron rocker would of been screwed into the floor of the carousel. The colours are just perfect. Her eyes are glass and original. Her tail is real horsehair.

Base measurements: 54.5″ long, 24″ deep, 3″ high


  • H: 156cm (61.5in)

One of Nikki Page’s earliest recollections is of saving pocket money to acquire beautiful objects. This interest has blossomed over the intervening years into a business specializing in fine antiques and decorative pieces from the 19th and early 20th century.

As Nikki sells from her family home every item has to pass her obsessive attention to quality and detail. Countless hours are spent scouring at fairs, French Chateau and private home sales looking for rare and original pieces.
