Allan Herschell was a pioneer, not only of carousels, but other amusement park rides for children and adults. His companies were founded in upstate New York and he counted Rudolph Wurlitzer among his partners. This horse was manufactured by the Herschell-Spillman company in the first quarter of the 20th century. While it has been restored, not uncommon for carousel horses of this age, the restoration is tasteful and the horse is in excellent condition. The colorways are muted but attractive. The carved number 10″ which identifies the form type is still visible on the horse’s rump above its tail. The horse includes a black metal stand for display.
