Custom Vintage Hand Painted with Beautiful Detail by a Professional Artist.. Custom Made, Full Sized, and in Wonderful Shape..
This stunning piece shows a few age related scuffs, minor paint wear and scratches which is only cosmetic and all an easy fix that can be buffed out or touched up, all of which is expected from a piece this old.. None of which takes away from how great an item this is.. It's Solid and Sturdy!..
Its condition is excellent for its age..
No visible cracking (only repair is a small 1-1/2" inch stir-up piece was reapplied with resin, photos show it missing on one side, but it has been reapplied after these photos were taken).. The body doesn't have the large splits in the body that are common with these horses.. With a little bit of work this horse could be absolutely perfect!..
(Please note: Pics may show white flaking on the paint finish and on and around the entire horse, these are not paint chips flaking, they are actual "snow flakes" as it was just starting to snow last week while I took the horse outside for better lighting while taking these pics!.. It was cold enough the flakes did not adhere and were brushed off carefully with a clean dust mop.. :D )
Very grand in presence and an impressive size.. Would make an excellentaddition to a playroom, family room,store window, etc..
This horse has been displayed in the home of a non-smoking adult collector..Other than the above, this horse is in amazing condition.. The craftsmanship and artwork is spectacular!..
It presents extremely well..
An Amazing, Bold Piece for Any Room!..
Purchased in the 1970s from an Antique Shop in Northern New Jersey..
This beautiful antique carousel horse has been in our family for over 35 years.. Affectionately called "Buttercup", this full-size horsewas originally purchased bymy parentsin the early 1970s from a private collector in North Jersey..
We have no other information about the history of this horse.. Its origin is unknown..
Carousel Horses Delight Collectors and Children of All Ages..
The horse is completely hand
painted by an artist, not airbrushed..
All it takes isyour imagination as how you will present it in your preferred surroundings!.. :) This standing and jumping horse weighs approximately 50 lbs and is strong and durable..
The size is approximately 58" x 14" x 54"..
"Buttercup" is hollow, made of an unknown material; some sort of heavy duty fiberglass, composite, resin, etc..
Strong and Solid!, yet fairly light weight..
The wood box base is free standing, and can be separated from the horse as well as its hair-like tail, and is made of a combination of solid wood along with some particle wood board type.. As seen in the pics, the base is still very sturdy but can certainly use some touch-up paint or stain from swelling and age related wear.. Great for a photo prop!All 100% Original, 100% Complete,
with 100% Original Paint..
Finally!, a full-sized carousel horse we can all afford!..
a Low Starting Price & Set with a Low Reserve..
We've seen these sell for over $1,000.00 elsewhere on !..
We are eventually relocating, so our move is your gain!.. :) This wonderful carousel horse has been a
beautiful part of our living room but sadly it is time to downsize and move.. It
has a positive effect on any room.. It has graced our living room for many years and
strangely it has the feeling of a real horse.. about the shipping part...
Due to its weight and size, I have listed this piece as "local pick up" as I am unfamiliar with freight shipping and its costs..If you know of a way to ship this safely, domestic or even international, please send me a message and perhaps it can be arranged.. If so, I would expect the shipping prices to be high..
We're offering HAND DELIVERY to YOUR DOOR!.. :)
For $145.00 (plus any tolls), I will hand deliver this horse to you via my truck anywhere in New Jersey and including as far as N.Y.C., Philadelphia, and to Wilmington, DE.. We are located in Cumberland County, N.J.. :)
Of course, Local Pick-up is "free".. :)
Please note: From what I was told, if you can arrange for the horse to be shipped to a place of business, shipping will beless expensive.. Due to its size, the horse has to be shipped freight..
We will try to ship to Canada and locations overseas, but be aware
shipping can be expensive.. Please inquire and discuss about rates.. Please allow up to 30-45 days for freight delivery.. It may take longer
for delivery outside of the U.S.A..
Because of the size of this piece, it really should be picked up or delivered by myself.. A pick-up truck, with protective (blankets) covering, cross truck tie downs and weather wrap would be appropriate to transport..
As mentioned above, I'm sure details can be worked out to ship anywhere in the United States or overseas.. If you would like more

dimensions are approximate by hand.. Please view photos for further details..

Hello everyone!.. :)
I've researched this horse a bit more and found out "Buttercup" is made of fiberglass and hollow..
She is ~ between 50 - 100 lbs. Hard to say as I do not have a scale..
Further review says she is most likely from the 1960's, but unsure..
Several customers have asked to see the bottom of her hoofs for certain marking and such. I do have pics of the bottom of her hoofs if you like me to send to you (I don't have any more room on this sale to post pics as 12 is the max).
