Carousel Horses

We 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.

All 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 ordering!

The paintwork

For 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, wonderful characteristic

The hair

The 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
