Carousels started as machines used to train horsemen in the 1600’s. In 1662, a fanciful carousel which rotated was created by an inventive Parisian toy maker who wanted everyone to enjoy the fun. Over the centuries brass poles, mirrors, jewels, lights, music, fantastic hand-carved wooden horses, and other creatures would adorn these carousels

This traditional and beautiful glass Carousel Horse ornament was carefully mouth-blown into a finely crafted mold. Then a hot solution of liquid silver was poured inside. Finally, it was delicately hand-painted and glittered for you to enjoy and cherish as a holiday heirloom!
