have several types of carousel horses in size
medium, large and 'extra large' for those who are
searching for something different and unique.
Sometimes we are inspired by the beauty of
antique and medieval horses and design very
special ones .Most of the horses which are shown
below are already sold but will give a good
impression of our work.
All our horses are unique 'one of a kind'
decoration pieces of art, made for decoration
purposes, which you will not find elsewhere
In our, only handcrafted, studio we handle our
horses with the atmost care and attention.
the leatherwork and saddlery on our horses is
handmade, handstitched and stamped with our brand.
The bits are our special, limited design.
Once the horse is ready, you get an unique horse
and one of the finest pieces of art.
Remember: it will take at least three months from
the receipt of a order to the final delivery.
We always try to meet special dates such as
birthdays and Christmas, but -to avoid a
disappointment- don't wait too long before
our horses we use an ancient oil-technique. By
glazing, a time-consuming and difficult painting
technique, the horse becomes very lifelike.
Glazing is a process of adding depht tot colors
and carvings details by applying layers of
pigmented stains over a base-coat. Each layer
must then be thoroughly dried. After eight or
sometimes even 12 layers of paint the horse is
sealed with shellac. It is this coat which
yellows with age and gives old horses their own,
picture below shows an example of a large type
carousel horse in brown and white.
Height of these horses is approx.1.40- 1.45m/58inches. Accessories
according to the wishes of the customer
on the horses for more information
hair on our horses is still on real, solid horse-hide.
We don't dye it, because this would affect the
natural, subtle variations of colour as opposed
to a mass product. We use only real horse hair
for manes and tails, ensuring a natural and very
lifely, realistic appearance
We are happy to present
some of our carousel horses.
Height between 1.25-.........m.
