062-1 - Carmel - $20,000
Circa 1905 outside row stander from the Prospect Park, NY carving studio
of Charles Carmel. The bold stargazer with tendrilled mane carries a
saddle buckled over a bordered blanket and an abbreviated fishtail
flanchard. The saddle terminates in a scrolled cantle from which issues
a large tassel. The chest is encompassed by a double layered scalloped
peytral with fringe; a fancy fringed crupper encloses the hindquarters.
Glass eyes and a natural horsehair tail. Primed, sanded and ready to
paint. 57 long x 62 high.
This horse once worked as a "temporary employee" on the Stein
& Goldstein carousel in Central Park. See "The Carousel News
& Trader," June 2011, page 11, for a photo of him painted
in "municipal maintenance" colors standing next to a chariot.
