    This is a very unusual Carousel "style" balancing horse display. The extremely detailed horse sits on a stand with a very heavy pendulum. A push will cause the horse to appear to be jumping over the stand back and forth for about a minute. Neatly hidden on the inside of the stand, as well as peeking out from the rear of the saddle is an angel. Maker and origin unknown. I would love to hear from anyone with more information on this piece. Stands about 38" high by 24" wide.

      Renetucaz: That's exciting!! No I still haven't found any information on where they might have been made, or how old they are. I'd love to see photos of yours, hope you post! If you find anything on the maker, be sure to let me know!
