CAROUSEL MERRY GO ROUND 1928 CW PARKER County Fair Style 35', Jumper Horses:
Item for sale: This is a 1928 C.W. Parker County Fair style carousel. This carousel measures 35 feet in diameter and 20 feet in height. This is one of the last 15 carousels made by CW Parker of Leavenworth, Kansas. This carousel is all original and authentic, including the frame, horses, and mechanics. The only antique carousel on with original parts!!! This carousel features 20 metal horses that have been restored and painted in 1992 by the current owner. There are 2 rows of horses, which are all William Mangels jumpers, which move front to back in a galloping motion. This carousel also includes 2 carriages. New brass poles in 1994. Has the original mechanics and sweeps. The original motor was rebuilt in 2002 to circa 1928 specs, by the antique mechanic curator from the historic Fox theater in Atlanta, GA. New hardwood floor overlaying original floor made in the 1940s. Rounding board artwork by Charles Walker in 2004. (The late Charles Walker was a renowned carousel historian based in the US.) This carousel was purchased from Derby state shows in 1989 by the current owner. It was part of a traveling show that traveled the Midwest. All cosmetic improvements were done in Atlanta with the advice of Charles Walker. Works great, mechanically sound and state inspected annually with the last inspection being performed in the state of Georgia in 2015. The carousel is owned by a prominent local pediatric orthodontic dentist in Atlanta. He had this carousel on display (housed in a separate building) next to his dental office and operated it 4 to 5 times annually for patient parties and charity events. The owner has to painstakingly part with this carousel due to moving his pediatric dental practice and the new location cannot accommodate any additional large structures to house the machine. NOTE: You can view 2 videos of the "operating" carousel on YouTube, entitled:
• Michael Healey DDS PC Carousel Parties
